When I compose a mail with a large number of "to/cc/bcc" recipients and I enter
the last line 'manually' (not from contact-list) sometimes I do not get a new
empty "to" line.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Compose new mail
2.Select number (>10) of contacts, add with "Add to to:" & "Add to cc"
3.Change some of them from "to" to "bcc"
4.On the last line "to" enter a new manual e-mail
5.Click inside body or subject field: no new line

Actual Results:  
I can not enter a new recipient that is not in the Contacts-list

Expected Results:  
A new "to:" line

Resolution is to add someone from the contactlist and delete the e-mailaddress
and replace it with a new one.
In TB 0.7.3 on Windows 200 SP4 this is not an issue, clicking in the to/cc/bcc
area of the compose window does result in a empty to-line.

It would be great if you, Koen, could confirm this.

In TB 1.0 build 20041206, I can not confirm.

I opened a new mail and selected 10+ contact for To: & Cc:. I then changed then
changed the 1st 3 to Bcc:. I typed in another manual address and clikced in
subject box. No new line showed up, but If I went back and clicked in the last
manual address and pressed enter, I got another blank line.

So, it works for me.
