When using the dialog window titled "Select contacts from Address Book" to
search the MS Exchange Global Address List (GAL), subsequent queries are
extremely slow. There are two problems here.
The first problem is that subsequent queries in the Contact tab of evolution
against the MS Exchange GAL are very responsive after the first query. It
appears that some sort of caching is being used to optimize subsequent queries.
However, the dialog window for selecting contacts does not appear to make use
of this same caching mechanism.
The second problem is that while the query is being executed, there is no
indication of activity, leading the user to believe the application is not doing
anything at all. Perhaps a status bar on this dialog window would be
appropriate, or at least a spinner on the mouse icon.
