Description Nicholas Miell 2006-10-04 07:40:58 UTC
Description of problem:
If you do Folder -> Select Thread in Evolution, the thread(s) containing the
currently selected message(s) aren't selected.

This upstream maintainer (fejj) is crazy and won't fix this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All of them.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press Ctrl-H or select Folder -> Select Thread
Actual results:
Some weird collection of messages is selected instead of an actual thread.

Expected results:
The actual thread is selected.

Additional info:
Upstream bug is at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216485
Current fix is: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=61803
(Note that this patch requires l10n effort.)

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2006-10-04 08:06:16 UTC
I've added this to my private builds of evo, which also fix bug 187565 (6 months
old, crash) and bug 167805 (13 months old; actually reported elsewhere even
longer ago, severe usability).

It'll be in evolution-2.8.0-7.fc6.dwmw2.2 when that appears later today in my
repo at ftp://ftp.infradead.org/pub/dwmw2-fc6/

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2006-10-04 09:15:37 UTC
I agree that the current behavior is misleading.  I've re-raised the issue
upstream to get a second opinion from the current maintainers.


Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2006-10-04 17:50:29 UTC
It looks like this has been taken care for Evolution 2.9.


Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-02 17:22:25 UTC
Closing as UPSTREAM since there is an equivalent bug report upstream.  I will
continue to track the problem there.  Please refer to [1] for further updates.

Upstream developer claimed to have a patch ready for 2.9, but it doesn't look
like it was ever committed.
