           Summary: Message pane paging methods are inconsistent
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.6
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: kde.0 chris pimlott net

Version:           1.9.6 (using KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

The message preview pane content scrolls by different amount depending on what method you use to navigate:

* PgDn/PgUp
* Alt-PgDn/Alt-PgUp
* Spacebar
* Clicking in the scrollbar area below/above the bar

Screenshot included to show difference.  In this example, PgDn scrolls by the least amount, followed by Alt-PgDn and spacebar, which scroll the same amount, and then scrolling by clicking the scrollbar, which scrolls the most.

It is unclear why they should scroll by different amounts.  The behavior should be consistent across all methods.

The results are similarly inconsistent for paging the message pane when viewing a message in its own window as well.
