Description Rob Hughes 2002-04-01 16:01:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020314

Description of problem:
Certain emails, most notably those from the siliconvalley lists, do not display
correctly. Its very difficult to describe accurately, so once this is assigned,
I'll forward and example of a mail that doesn't display correctly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open email from siliconvalley.com

Actual Results:  Email is garbled, with text cut off by a frame on the right.
Text can be highlighted and will become partially visible

Expected Results:  Email is properly displayed as it is kmail and mozilla mail
with imap.

Additional info:

I'm using an nvidia card with nvidia's latest driver, but since other clients
can properly display the mail, including kmail, mozilla, and netscape, I don't
think it's related to X. I've also tried the evolution build from rawhide, but
the same issue is present.

I'll either need a forward of a mail or one attached to the bug.... likely to be
a gtkhtml bug, though
