Description of problem:
KAddressbook will not save the column widths.  They are messed up in the main
window. The Email, Home Phone and Business Phone columns are very, very narrow,
only showing the first 2 or 3 letters or digits.  If I make them wider using the
mouse, they are back to the "default" widths once I close and reopen KAddressbook.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring up KAddressBook adjust columnss, exit, the reopen.

Same here.
When the column widths are changed, and kaddressbook is closed,
the column widths are actually written to the config file in
However, on next start the config file widths are ignored.

FWIW, I've also got annoyed with this bug ;(

This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core 
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in 
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with 
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may 
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it 
back to NEW state.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-18 18:10:25 UTC
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.

Closing as CANTFIX.
