Description Tom 2004-09-22 19:45:55 UTC
Version:           1.7 (using KDE 3.3.0, Gentoo)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.4.1 20040803 (Gentoo Linux 3.4.1-r2, ssp-3.4-2, pie-
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release

When applying filters to a large number of messages, the GUI isn't redrawn.  This, in combination with http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90042 and slow spam filters, means that the GUI can become unresponsive for minutes at a time.  These things ought to be done in a seperate thread, or else the GUI should still be periodicly updated.  Ideally there would be a dialog with a progress bar and a cancel button during large or slow runs of apply filters.
