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
