User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5a (20040120)

When querying against an LDAP server, Thunderbird will not show any matches if
the entered name contains a comma (e.g., "Doe, John").

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open compose new message window
2. Enter a partial name (e.g. Doe).  All matches for a last name of Doe are shown.
3. Enter a comma to narrow the search to first names.  All matches disappear.

Actual Results:  
No LDAP matches are displayed

Expected Results:  
The search should have continued and allowed further qualification.

working as designed -> INVALID

comma seperates multiple addresses on a single line. so your comma denotes the
first address is complete and you are now typing a second address.  Hence,
autocomplete can't currently do "lastname, firstname".

workaround if it were addressbook and not ldap - set nickname=lastname+firstinitial
