Description Luis Silva 2011-11-27 15:23:16 UTC
Version:           Git (master) (using KDE 4.7.3) 
OS:                Linux

The title says it all. If you use the filter box above the folder list the message list will only reflect the contents of the last selected folder. This can cause data loss if acting on emails after this bug was triggered.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select any folder in the folder list.
2. Use the filter box to search for a different folder.
3. Click on the folder you were searching for.

Actual Results:  
The message list will show only the messages from the folder selected in 1. and not the messages in the active folder.

Expected Results:  
Whe an folder is selected, the message list should reflect the content of that folder.

OS: Linux (i686) release 3.0.0-14-generic
Compiler: gcc

Bug still present in master.
Comment 2 Philipp Woelfel 2012-08-03 15:49:35 UTC
This bug is still present in KDE 4.9.
Comment 3 Laurent Montel 2012-08-03 15:56:01 UTC
? I don't understand 
you click on specific folder and it's updated no ?
Comment 4 Laurent Montel 2012-08-03 15:59:09 UTC
Ah it doesn't clean selection.
Comment 5 Philipp Woelfel 2012-08-03 20:40:51 UTC
I'm a bit confused by the original bug report. Here is what happens on my system: 

If I enter something in the *folder* filter (the one that is by default not turned out, but you can turn it on in the preferences), the *message* list gets "corrupted". I.e., after selecting a new folder from the ones that are still visible when the filter is on, the messages that are shown in the message list do not correspond to the selected folder. Sometimes, the message list seems to show a mix of messages from the selected folder and some other folder (the one that was active before I entered something in the filter field). This behavior does not change even once I clear the filter. The only way to get back to a normal behavior is by restarting kmail2.

I can confirm the behavior exactly as Philipp describes it in #5 on Kubuntu 12.04 with original kde sc and also still same behavior with the kde sc 4.9 backports

Git commit c87b460d62dbb9c59070e63bfc05deb87a59a14f by Martin Koller.

Pushed by mkoller into branch 'KDE/4.10'.

make sure the messagelist only shows selected folders

When the folder tree is filtered and the currently shown folder is
now no longer in the folder tree, the automatic deselection did not work
because the hidden folders were set to not-selectable and not-enabled,
but QItemSelection can only deselect selectable and enabled items.
This led to the problem that we saw the old selected folder and any
newly selected folder intermixed in the messagelist.

Nice ! This was a very annoying bug, I'm eager to try the next Kmail version.

Thank you again :)
