Summary: Address autocompletion fails on names formatted as
"Reverse Name with Comma"
AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
ReportedBy: paul basilisk ukfsn org
Version: 1.9.6 (enterprise 0.20070907.709405) (using KDE 3.5.8, Kubuntu (gutsy) 4:3.5.8-0ubuntu3.1)
Compiler: Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.22-14-386
I start to type a name in the "To:" field and kmail shows a drop-down list of names matching the letters I have typed. The names are formatted as "Reverse Name with Comma" because that is how I have set them in address book. If I now use the up and down keys to select the name I want, then each time I move the highlighter to a new name, the first bit of the previous name (up to and including the comma) gets left behind in the address field so that I end up with an address something like:
"Smith, "Smith, "Smith, "Smythe, John" <john.smythe email address>
Which is obviously invalid.
