Description Alex Dănilă 2009-11-12 00:02:18 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.3.2)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

When entering a name in the search field, Marble will simply jump to the first match instead of waiting for me to press enter, or at least delaying the jump.

This is confusing, because if you are looking over some part of the world, and then search for a city in that area, the map will jump away, thus leaving you in front of an unexpected zone. This is worse if the searched place is not even listed.

-Navigate to  26° 21' 32.1"E,  47° 11' 14.0"N
-Start searching for "Siret"
-Notice that when you type 'S' the map already jumps to   3° 42'E,  36° 37' 47.5"N (Saabat) which is some place in Algeria, way far from NE of Romania. Now, you've completely lost the area you where searching for, and got the first match for the prefix.
