Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Ubuntu v. 8.04
Evolution v.
When deleting multiple emails in the evolution GUI, sometimes (as in every second time frequency) the last email is left visible in strike-through. Window refresh (F9) does not solve the problem, however selecting another folder and returning to the inbox makes the deleted entry go away. This bug is cosmetic.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately we can't fix it, because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.
 We have instructions on debugging some types of problems. http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures
At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).

I second the bug.

In a folder's messages list, delete 1 or more messages, the last one is shown as marked deleted (strikethrough) but does not disappear from the view.

Going to another folder and coming back makes the view proper.

I'm using a Dovecot IMAP server over SSL.

Hardy with security, updates and backports, up-to-date.

This behaviour started with the latest package coming from -updates.

Not only do I experience the same bug, but I find that the initial report gave the proper facts. Triaging went a bit quick on this one!

confirmed, the title is misleading though, the issue seems to be limited to the case where only one message is in the list, can you confirm that?

ah, I have to correct a comment that will arrive here later (sent by email).

It happens to the last message message deleted, yes, but only when it was the last message present in the directory,

Sorry about that, I went too quickly...

Sebastien, merci :o)

cherry-picked the evolution* packages from proposed updates.

I was able to reproduce the issue with evolution 2.22.2-0ubuntu1.2, it indeed leave a message as strike through when you delete them. After installed the proposed version (2.22.2-0ubuntu1.3) i don't have the issue anymore, deleting/moving works as expected (no strike through anymore), bug is fixed, thanks.

After a day of heavy use of the -proposed packages:

- problem fixed
- no side effect to report

After a whole 15 minutes of light testing of the -proposed package :
- original problem is fixed
- no side effects (except a happy coworker, but that's a good thing!)

Many thanks for the fix!
