Re: [Evolution] (bug!) Emacs keys again...

Now I've cleary found that the key issue is a bug in evolution!

I went to the shell, did
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme -t string Emacs
just to be sure,
started evolution
went to the menu, asking for "New", then the keys worked in the
Discarded this mail, and asked for "New" again,
now the keys are fu..ed up!

As this has been an issue for several years, I've had problems with
the  keys in evolution in every major upgrade I've done the last
years, since the emacs-key mode setting was removed from evolution.
I got it working every time, but now it seems as evolution
is finally dead.

If someone could hint me about where to fix it, hint me about
how to get the fix quickly into the distribution, then I could
consider continue evolution, but with the important editing
keys messed up, it is useless.

        Best regards

I'm now running gnome 2.1, evolution

First mail composing, strange behaviour ahh, then I remember...

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme -t string Emacs

and also to be sure, update the file
with a file known to be good. (even made
point to same, just to be sure)

Restart evolution, and now the keys works Ahh, wonderful.
until... I don't know what happened, (a few machine restarts)
just suddenly I had the same problem again.

The keys works in every other gtk application, like editing
forms, editing gmails, editing the browser address line etc.

I just get wrong keys, the menu accel keys e.g. Select all
are empty.

What can be wrong, why is evolution the only application
where I get this problem? And why doesn't it help to
restart it?
