Description 2011-04-10 09:40:38 UTC
Version:           2.0.89 (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

When in kmail in a message i right click in a contact that contains spaces in name, that contact appears incorrect in kaddressbook, an exmaple:

Addinf the contact 'Alberto Gomes <alberto@exemplo.com"  will appear in the new generated file ~/.local/share/contacts/lPtLz4seH1.vcf like this:

EMAIL:Alberto =

as we can see it doesnt even appears the email address, and in the email field doesnt even appear the email, only the first name appears.

Reproducible: Always

OS: Linux (x86_64) release
Compiler: gcc
Comment 1 Antonis Tsiapaliokas 2011-04-12 19:21:50 UTC

I cannot reproduce this bug on opensuse 11.4. My kde environment is the following

Qt: 4.7.1
KDE Development Platform: 4.6.41 (4.7 >= 20110106)
KMail: 2.0.89

Please could try to reproduce the bug with a newer version of kdepim and check if it is still valid?
Comment 2 2011-04-12 21:52:34 UTC
QT: 4.7.2
Kde from trunk from 2 days ago.
kdepim was last updated from git repo in April 1

If i have understand right, when you right click into a name from the "To:"/"CC:"/"FROM:" or another field from an email, and this name contain a space then in the kaddressbook, the email address doesn't appear correct. Right? I tried to reproduce this bug and i could not... Please could you give me more details about the reproduce steps?
Comment 4 2011-04-13 02:27:53 UTC
Yes you are correct, the problem isnt about spaces but about characters that contain acents, the example i gaved was wrong, the correct example was:

Alberto Simões <ambs@di.uminho.pt>

and the file created had this:

EMAIL:Alberto =

I just try to add my email into kaddressbook and i had the same problem, cause my name also contains as accent: Zé

Im going to send a test email to you and try adding it with the right click on my address and youll see what happens.

Git commit 115954932f961a1d9ef5f1c3a1230a750ecb4750 by Thomas McGuire.

Handle mailto URLs with non-ASCII names correctly.

The problem was the conversion from QUrl to QString, which made it
impossible to re-parse the URL later.
Avoid this conversion.
