Viewing Message jumps to bottom right corner?

Michael-John Anthony
Hi all,

An interesting one! Using Evolution-2.4.1, Evolution-Exchange-2.4.1,
evolution-data-server-1.4.1.1 . Using Gnome 2.12.1

2 messages. None have attachments. One from a local Exchange user, the
other from outside the organisation.

If I view a message that has come from a local Exchange user, I click
on the message, and I can see the headers and the top of the message.

Let's call this "normal". It's what I'd expect.

If I view a message that hasn't come from Exchange (ie, from outside
the organisation), then clicking on the message makes it jump to the
bottom right hand corner of the message. I then need to scroll up to
the top to read it properly.

This is not what I'd expect.

Has anyone else come across this?

Cheers!

   -- M.

I am sure i have seen something like this on bugzilla. Could not find it
though.
Could you attach the message in question here (or even better file a bug
on bugzilla.gnome.org and attach the message in question there, removing
any confidential information that is in the message)

Cheers,
partha

sounds a bit like http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=307005 to
me, though the description does not totally match. :-/

cheers,

I can reliably reproduce something like this with Caret Mode. When
viewing a mail, Evo jumps to the bottom of that mail every time for me.
(This of course makes no difference for short messages that fit entirely
into the mail view pane.)

Michael, do you happen to have Caret Mode enabled by any chance? Try
disabling it.

  View / Caret Mode


My observation isn't related to Exchange at all, but to the length of
mails and enabled Caret Mode. Even if this is not your issue, it is a
usability bug. Caret Mode simply is broken. *sigh*  Andre, remember
anything like this?
