Description David Gersic 2009-11-13 04:57:26 UTC
Version:           1.12.2 (using KDE 4.3.1)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    openSUSE RPMs

Initially, KMail keyboard navigation works fine. If I lock / unlock the desktop session, KMail stops responding to keyboard navigation, but otherwise is still working. Typing messages works, for example, but ctrl-n to send a new message does not. Exiting and restarting KMail gets keyboard navigation working again.

This is 100% repeatable. If any other information is needed, I'd be happy to supply it.

OS is OpenSUSE 11.1 Linux, using Gnome as the desktop, but with KMail as the email package.

Can you check if you have the same problem with any other KDE application in that situation (which was running before you lock the screen) ?
Comment 2 David Gersic 2009-11-25 02:20:37 UTC
I don't use any other KDE apps, just KMail. Is there one in particular that you'd like me to test this with?
Comment 3 Martin Koller 2009-11-25 08:01:36 UTC
Try kwrite for example.
Comment 4 David Gersic 2009-11-26 20:04:45 UTC
Ok, tested with kwrite and here's the results. I left kmail and kwrite running. kmail was left as the foreground application. After the screensaver locked and was unlocked, kmail was affected. Switched to kwrite, and it was _not_ affected. Switched back to kmail, and it's ok now.

I'm re-testing now leaving kwrite as the foreground application.

Kwrite doesn't seem to be able to reproduce the problem. And once kwrite works, kmail is ok as well.
