Funny scrolling problem in KMail

Christian Boltz-5
Hello,

happy new year!


Since a few days / some Tumbleweed snapshots [1] I noticed a funny
scrolling problem in KMail.

When reading a long mail (for example a Tumbleweed snapshot
announcement), I can scroll down with the "page down" key exactly once.
Pressing page down again does nothing, even there's enough text left to
scroll down.

If I scroll up again, the "page down" key works again exactly once to
scroll to the "second page", and then it stops to work.


I can scroll down with the "down arrow" key (slowly of course) until the
end of the mail.

Scrolling with the mouse also works until the end of the mail - both by
clicking the scrollbar and by using the mouse wheel.

Oh, and if I scrolled down with the down key or the mouse, pressing
"page up" brings me to the beginning of the mail, as if I had only
scrolled down by one page. Even more funny - pressing "page down"
scrolls up to the second page.

Is this a known issue, or do I need to open a bugreport?


Regards,

Christian Boltz

Confirmed here.  I've never noticed it before because I don't use page up/down.  If you open the bug report and post the link I'll add my confirmation to it.

Kind regards,

Good idea if one doesn't already exist

And another confirmation ... Someone must have forgotten to clear a variable.
All the exceptions you've shown would have been a nice puzzle for the Xmas
holidays ... :P

I just started a little project: the openSUSE Spring of Code.
It has many advantages over similiar projects, most prominently it's
all about honor and you don't have to care how to pay taxes on money.
