Description Nobes 2008-04-18 21:41:46 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

Framed boxes with one charater appear all over the email view panel on the following action:

1. Click somewhere on the message with the left or middle mouse button.
2. Move the mouse to a different part of the screen
2. Press the <CTRL> key.

You will get random (tan colered) little boxes with one character each scattered throughout the message.

The boxes can be turned on and off with the <CTRL> key.

This is really annoying.

This is a feature and not a bug. Bug 124218 requests to turn off that feature.
