thanks for your report, that works fine here, not confirming, does it works fine with another new user created on your system? which video card do you have and which driver are you using? do you have the desktop efffects enabled? does it happens without them? thanks.

Changed in evolution:
assignee: nobody → desktop-bugs
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Incomplete

Video card is NVIDIA 7300

As for the new user:
I have a user ID that has not had email set up and has only been logged
in so that the home directories were created.
I set up the email and added an address to the addy book.
Started a New Mail, and started typing the first 3 letters of the email
or name and I am now presented with a "suggestion".
If I click on the suggested email address, the dropdown disappears.
If I hit enter to use the first suggestion, the email address is placed
into the TO field and the dropdown momentarily disappears, the reappears
with nothing in the drop..

I can not screencap as the dropdown will close before the screen is

I hope this helps

Still an issue and more of an annoyance than effecting functionality.

What else would you need from me to have sufficient information to pursue this bug?
