Re: Two old issues

Hi Jack,

There are two issues with Balsa I find somewhat annoying. I'm not sure if I've mentioned them on the list 
before, but I figure I'll ask if anybody has any thoughts on whether I might have some configuration issue, 
or if I should consider them annoying bugs or just annoying but acceptable bahavior.

First, about 90% of the time I open the Draftbox folder, I get x messages, x hidden - i.e., ALL messages are 
hidden. Typing a space in the search bar and hitting enter displays all the messages. Erasing the space and 
hitting Enter still leaves all messages displayed. I have never seen this happen with any other folder. It 
seems to be happening less often today, now that I've decided to ask about it, but still over half the time.

Yeah, that's a bug. I'm not sure what's causing it, but I see the same thing in the draftbox--also, very occasionally 
in Inbox. It may be connected with the incorrect sorting and threading that I see in other folders--in some, I 
routinely click the "Date" column header twice, just to fix the sorting. Somehow, the filter that determines 
what messages are shown is not set correctly.

Second, with all my other apps, left clicking above or below a scroll bar moves the bar in that direction, 
but middle clicking moves the bar to that position. In Balsa, left clicking moves the scroll bar to that 
position. middle clicking has no effect, and right clicking moves the bar in that direction (up or down, if I 
click above or below the bar). I'm on Gentoo Linux, mostly stable versions of libraries and apps, mostly a 
KDE system.

That's a relatively recent change in Gtk conventions about scrolling. I'd guess that Qt-based apps have the 
behavior you're used to, and perhaps Balsa is the only Gtk-based app you use. It's not a Balsa-bug!

This last one is different from the issue that the first time I click anywhere in the body of a message 
(default layout, lower right pane) it seems to scroll the message down just enough to move the header area 
out of view. This happens whether I am displaying a plain text or an html message. I'll bring that one up 
again later.

Yes, we're aware of that one, too! Still not sure who's bug it is...
