Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

When composing a new email in Evolution, the OS does not spell check the subject line of the message one is composing.

I am using Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix with Evolution 2.30.3.

To reproduce the bug:

1. Open Evolution
2. Click "New" to compose a new email message
3. Deliberately type a misspelled word in the subject line.
4. Notice that the system does not underline the misspelled word.
5. Copy and paste the misspelled word into the body of the new email and notice that the system underlines the misspelled word in red in the body, but not in the subject line.
