Add a card so it is near the horizontal splitter, results in erratic behavior
Trunk build 2002-02-14: Win 2k Overview: In an existing profile, keep adding cards and eventually you will add a card that will display close to the horizontal splitter. When this happens then the app freezes. Steps to reproduce: 1. Open an existing profile 2. Open the address book 3. Add cards and continue adding cards until one meets the horizontal splitter Actual Results: - Windows: it freezes - Linux: Seth says that it will appear to flash
Additional Information: - Windows: Even after an exit/restart, everytime I open the address book then the application hangs. Marking nsbeta1 due to the permanent hang, even after an exit/restart.
Discussed in 2/28/02 Mail & News bug meeting. Decision was to plus this bug.
Racham or Nbaca: when this happens, can you "break" in the debugger and try to get a stack trace of the hang? That would help a lot.
If I understand this right - when you say Add a card you mean Clicking on New CARD and adding multiple entries one by one. I tried this with my daily builds and am unable to reproduce this. I tried both with an existing addressbook as well as with a new one with and without existing entries in them. Can you verify if this is a WFM ninoschka?
Taking bugs from bhuvan.

Reopening since problem is occuring on the latest linux builds. - trunk build 4/5 and 4/8: Linux RH 7.1: erratic behavior of horizontal divider. - trunk build 4/5: WinMe, Mac 10.1.3: ok
Status: VERIFIED → REOPENED
Resolution: WORKSFORME → ---
Marking nsbeta1 since this problem has returned in the latest linux builds. It does not hang on linux but the divider flashes. Workaround: Select another addressbook, resize the window to make more room for the last card to display then select the original address book and the flashing stops for that profile. Since it's specific to linux, changing the summary from "Add a card so it appears near the horizontal splitter, results in a hang" to "Add a card so it is near the horizontal splitter, results in erratic behavior"
Happened to me too (WinME) until a few days ago.
Discussed in Mail News bug mtg with Engineering QA and PjM. Decided to ADT2 and plus this bug.

The problem is easily reproduced on my systems in a new profile where the panes have not been resized. Branch build 2002-04-23: WinMe, Address Book directory pane displays a freeze problem (can't move the window or access the menus) when a new address book is added and it just touches the horizontal splitter. Workaround: resize the sidebar down and it is no longer hung. Branch build 2002-04-23: Linux RH 7.1, Address Book results pane displays the erratic (flickering) behavior when a new card touches the horizontal splitter. Workaround: select another address book, resize the results pane horizontal splitter, go back to the original address book and it's ok. Branch build 2002-04-23: Mac 9.1, Can reproduce the problem in the directory pane and the results pane. It's worse on the Mac because after resizing the window it stops flickering but if I resize it back so that the last card touches the horizontal splitter then it starts flickering again.
CCing hewitt and hyatt for their comments. andreww informed me that hewitt might know of a similar problem.
Sounds like bug 121583
