Description Andrew D. Stadler 2005-04-04 19:45:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323
Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
I track two IMAP mailboxes (work server & personal).  The left-hand pane lists
these, and others, as well as the subfolders.  I generally keep the summary
lines pane scrolled to the bottom to keep latest messages in view.  But clicking
back-and-forth in the two inboxes in the mailboxes pane causes the summary panes
to (sometimes) scroll up to a seemingly random selection.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evolution 2.0.4-2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Configure Evolution with two IMAP accounts and fairly full mailboxes
2.  Click once on mailbox #1, observe list of messages in inbox
3.  Scroll to bottom, click once on bottom entry to hilite & preview it.
4.  Repeat steps 2 & 3 with mailbox #2
5.  Now click again on mailbox #1, observe the message list has scrolled up a
6.  You may have to click back and forth a couple of times, or possibly do some
other ops, in order to see this.  You may also see it in mailbox #2 instead of
mailbox #1. 

Actual Results:  In certain conditions (haven't perfectly reproduced the how or
why) the scroll positions jump back to somewhere in the middle of the message list.

Expected Results:  Scroll position in message list should always be maintained.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

The distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported,
could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently
supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue
turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If
after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
