From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/9.51 (X11; Linux i686; U; en)

Description of problem:
This is a kinda small, but very irritating bug. 
I have 2 Gmail accounts configured via IMAP in Kmail. 

When I click on the Modify button in the Accounts tan in Kmail COnfiguration, 
The Account Name field displays the account name for a moment and becomes 
blank, and I have to enter the Account Name every time I change something in 
the settings. 

If I keep it blank, the folder for that account gets renamed to some number 
(which seems random) and the next time I go to modify that account, it says 
"unknown account" . 

So the main problem is that the Account Name field should not Vanish like that 
in the first place. This was never a problem with Kmail in KDE 3.5. 

As a side note, I have noticed this problem of Vanishing field entry on trying 
to change a setting or something in many KDEPim apps in KDE 4. To be specific , 
i have seen it in Akregator while editing feeds (the feed name disappears) , 
and also in Kaddressbook when I am editing any contact the formatted name field 
disappears as soon as it appears in the dialog.

I have reported this bug in KDE Bugs, and they reported that it works for them. 
So I guess its a fedora issue
