Well, it doesn't happen for me, works fine here.
Can you perhaps attach a screenshot?
Maybe some special circumstances are causing this, it would be nice to know which.
Comment 2 Maciej Pilichowski 2007-07-01 12:48:31 UTC
I didn't describe the way to reproduce, I am sorry.

Run KMail, set mail as important, quit Kmail (!), unmark the mail.

Thanks for the screenshot, it cleared things up a bit.
The bug only happens when the "important" column is shown (it is hidden by default), and indeed only after restarting KMail.

The problem seems to be that KMail resizes the columns at every restart. So the "important" column gets resized as well. 
If something doesn't fit into a column, dots ("...") are displayed. The empty important flag doesn't fit for some reason, therefore you see the dots.

Probably very similar to bug 142609.

I didn't observe this -- if any icon does not fit, it is just cut-off.

I don't observe this bug with the new message list any longer (trunk r948809). The original problem seems to be that removing the important mark resizes the column. This is no longer reproducible.

There are other quirks such as column order not being saved but these are already reported. Time to close this bug I guess.

Yep, let's close it
