           Summary: Split editor unusable
           Product: kmymoney4
           Version: 4.5
          Platform: Fedora RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kmymoney-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: bill at awmach.org

Version:           4.5 (using KDE 4.4.5) 
OS:                Linux

Editing a new record and hitting the splits button brings up a dialog. However
you can only enter one character into the account name before it tries to find
the account and then pops up a dialog that it doesn't exist. If you bring up an
old record and hit the edit button, then no matter what field you click on you
are bounced back out as if you hadn't clicked on the field and the previous
contents are displayed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to enter any new record in an account.

Actual Results:  
Can't enter splits. You can enter everything else, just not a split.

Expected Results:  
You should be able to use the split editor. Without it, you can't use the

I've deleted the config file and restarted the app just to see if that made a
difference. Same results.

I went back to 3.98.1. With it, if you try to edit the description in the split
editor it tries to make an account out of it so there is no way to enter a
description in the split editor. This can also happen when you try to enter a
value even though the value is highlighted and the value column of the row
apparently has focus. When selecting an account you might randomly get the
account selection dialog or it might take off trying to find an account after
one character as well, but at least if you try several times you can usually
get it to select the right account. The selection works properly once the
account selection pull down list is shown.

The only way to edit an amount is to bring up a calculator and change the value
there. That works in 3.98.1. However on 4.5, even clicking on the calculator
icon is immediately dropped back as if you hadn't hit it at all.

Using a right click in the edit dialog brings up edit, but it likewise fails to
bring up the edit in 4.5

The software is compiled from your source. The KDE distribution is from Fedora
12. I've tried backing up one level of kernel. Other applications don't seem to
be having any problems with focus and mouse so I don't think it is video driver
related but it's hard to tell. I reset all mouse parameters to defaults as

While it doesn't cause data loss, it certainly seems like a major bug. I'll be
trying F13 at some point in the near future, but I'm not sure that will make
any difference.
