Subject: [Evolution] Problem with message window popping up.
Message-ID: <1331740582 9044 23 camel ansel-2>

My Evolution window is split vertically between the message list on top
and the current message below.   When I click on a message I want to
look at, it often happens that the message pops up in a separate window.
Also, when I click on the title bar of that message with the intention
of moving it, it goes to full screen, as though I double clicked.

I've experimented with different mouse settings, but I can't eliminate
this behavior.  This happens on my main machine still running Fedora 14
and Evolution 2.32.3, but it is relatively recent.  It never happened
before.  Also, I have another machine running Fedora 15, and Evolution
behaves normally on that.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this and how I might fix
it?   Is it likely to go away when I upgrade to Fedora 16?

If you double-click on the subject line, it will open the message in a second window.  This is Evolution behavior.
Try setting your double-click time longer in your mouse options panel.  I've never sought whether Evolution
has a way to alter this behavior.

If you double-click the title bar of a window, it will maximize.  This is window manage behavior.
Window and mouse behavior settings will let you alter what happens here.
Again, I suspect a longer interval will resolve your complaints.
