Version: (using KDE KDE 3.4.92)
Installed from: Unlisted Binary Package
How to reproduce:
- open the edit categories dialog from KAddressbook's New Contact dialog
- press the Add button
- write something in the text input on the bottom of the dialog
- a new category shoul be created
- the topmost category (which is selected by default) gets modified
The dialog works correctly if one first selects another category from the listview.

Patch to fix
Patch to fix (apply in libkdepim).
Make sure the current item from the category list is put in the edit box at
startup. This is needed because the Add action checks that the edit box != ""
before doing anything.
On a wider note, I found it a little tricky to work out how to use this dialog.
Are there plans to change the way it functions? If not, would it be worthwhile
to ask the usability folks?

The development of the old KAddressBook will be discontinued for KDE 4.4.
Since the new application has the same name, but a completly new code base we close all bug reports against the old version and ask the submitters to resend there reports against the new product.
