It happened to me again.  No, it's NOT my keyboard.  I'm
not sure how to repeat it exactly, but I think it should
be fairly easy to do (especially since it's happened to
me twice in the past day).  I'm using sawfish and gtk+
and bonobo from cvs from this weekend (to fix the focus
bug with address fields), and since then, when I first
launch Evolution the Delete key works to delete e-mail,
but after a while it no longer works.  If I can figure
out the exact steps I'll post a bug report.  So please
Ximian folks, this time don't be so quick to dismiss this

Well, try this.  Click on the message body in your main
program window.  Now hit DEL.  You'll notice it won't work.
If you now click on the message list, DEL will work.
It's a program focus thing that I reported last night.
Could this be what you've noticed?


I'm at work right now so I can't try it out until late
tonight, but I'm almost positive that's not it.  This morning
I specifically selected an e-mail, hit <DEL>, nothing happens.
So I click on several more.  Note that ^D worked every time.

I'm suspicious that it's a sawfish problem from this weekend's
CVS.  I think to reproduce it all you have to do is switch
to a different desktop and back, but I won't be able to test
this until at least tonight.

There do appear to be other focus problems between IMAP
and local mail folders (I think I reported that this 
weekend but haven't seen any responses yet).  Is this what
you've seen?  To me it looks like the message highlight
color is different between the two, but I suppose that could
be because the focus is different between the two.

No, your experiences are different from mine.  I am using all
pre-compiled stuff from Red-Carpet and my configuration is 
using POP3 servers.  I hope you are able to track your DEL
key issue down.

Good luck!
