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
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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1]In Kmail , click on Settings->Configure Kmail->Accounts
2]Select any account and click Modify or double click the account .
3]The account name field is shown selected for a moment and then becomes
blank , and hence the account name has to be entered each time the account is
The bug on KDE Bugs
Thanks for the upstream report. Will monitor for resolution.
