i can get into a state where the caret doesn't appear in the mail compose window. so far i only see this on mac (os x 10.2.5); haven't seen it yet on win2k or linux rh8.0. to observe, open a mail compose window --doesn't matter if it's plaintext or html compose. the caret should be blinking in the To: field, but instead i don't see the caret at all. if you don't see this immediately, close the compose window and reopen another one. (fwiw, i use cmd+shift+M to bring up the window.) since there's no caret, text entry doesn't work. workaround: hit the tab key, then the caret appears in To:, and text entry works. occurs with 2003.04.28 comm bits, but also with a build from 2003.04.23. so, i'm not sure if this is recent regression. has anyone seen this on other platforms?
ninoschka says this is a dup (either here or in bugscape), but we cannot find the previous bug. pls dup as needed.
ninoschka, were you thinking of bug 141648? that was reported for Mac OS 9, and verified fixed last year. ducarroz mentioned another bug he spun off from it, but i couldn't find one.
see also bug 195798 comment 10 --looks like this bug comes and goes.
dup of 203827, which list 3 scenarios for this behavior to show up. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 203827 ***
