When editing an email address in the To: field of the composer the cursor always jumos to the end of line which makes it very hard to enter/change an email address
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create new mail
2. enter some text in the To: Lineedit
3. move cursor in the middle of the text
4. press backspace
cursor jumps to end of lineedit
cursor shouls never be moved automatically
This seems to be a regression introduced in the 4.10 RCs somewhere
Need to test last version
I fixed it (I hope)
thanks for looking into it!
Sorry, but for me its not fixed :-/
I just have built and tested current 4.10 branch.
.... resetting to unconfirmed
Ok I fixed an other bug.
I will investigate it.
any news on this?
In current kmail its almost impossible to edit the recipient of an email manually.
Can you reproduce this?
no I can't.
Do you use ldap for autocompletion ?
Perhaps you have specific config ?
No, I have:
* default vcard adressbook
* CardDAV Resource
* Google Contacts Resource
But I think I found out how to reproduce:
right click on the addressfield and set Textcompletion to "drop down" (or similar, german locale here)
If I set this to something other it works fine here too
Happens also in KMail 4.10.1 on openSUSE 12.3.
It's still present in 4.10.4

I had this bug many times too in the past. Today I decided OK, time to fix it.... and obviously I can't reproduce it anymore... KDE/4.10 branch.
same here. working today for me in master.
<twilight zone music>
For me this is still reproducable using todays KDE/4.10 branch
Still happens in KMail 4.10.90 (4.11 beta2) on openSUSE 12.3.

For me this is fixed in current 4.11 branch
Here's one situation where I can reliably reproduce.
I get an email from a mailing list.
I reply to all.
I see 3 addresslineedits (why 3?, that's a different question)
If I try to edit email@example.com by clicking after any character and then pressing the backspace key, the cursor immediately goes to the end-of-line after removing the previous character. ditto for each addresseelineedit.
It's still a problem in 4.11 rc1

please try to debug if you can reproduce.
I fixed my ldap kdab but not success to reproduce it.
Don't know why create this bug
I dont think its related to ldap....
So it's related to what ?:)
I can't reproduce it.
I hope that allen will debug it
I'm seeing this issue in kmail 4.10.5 in debian sid.
Ok but I don't have this bug and people which has this bug doesn't debug it...
Update from my side: Seems to be fixed for me in 4.11, atm I cannot reproduce it anymore and I could 100% with latest 4.10
It just happened to me with KMail 4.11.00 on openSUSE 12.3.
I confirm this bug on up-to-date 4.12.0 on openSUSE 13.1. I'd humbly suggest it's time to change this to "confirmed". :-) This has been open for almost a year.
Hmmm ... It's gone for me now on kmail 4.12
Not for me.

A specific 4.11 release or a revision between releases? I can reproduce it in 4.11.2 on Gentoo.
Actually this bug only appears for one user on this machine, another user does not show the symptoms.

This still happens for me on kdepim 4.12 (F20). I do have an LDAP address book configured, but it happens with all addresses - recent addresses, local address book, manually typed names, etc. I'm attaching an strace (kmail2-2.trace) that was captured when only editing the To field.
Created attachment 85458 [details]
strace during To edit
One additional observation:
This behaviour does not happen when deleting until the next word boundary for me, i.e. when I press Ctrl-delete.
Seems to be gone in at least 4.14.1, many thanks to who ever took care of it.
This bug has only been reported for versions before 4.14, which have been unsupported for at least two years now. Can anyone tell if this bug still present?
If noone confirms this bug for a Framework-based version of kmail2 (version 5.0 or later, as part of KDE Applications 15.12 or later), it gets closed in about three months.
Just as announced in my last comment, I close this bug. If you encounter it again in a recent version (at least 5.0 aka 15.08), please open a new one unless it already exists. Thank you for all your input.
