I tried to be as complete as possible with the summary.

I noticed a strange bug (for some days, maybe a week) on news filter dialog.

I have seen this bug on the latest official nightly and as well on a 90 minutes
old CVS aviary homemade build.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to newsgroup list
2.Select one
3.Go to to tools / message filter

Actual Results:  
Instead of showing me list of rules for selected newsgroup, message filter
dialog shows me the rules I've set for my first account, a mail one :(

Expected Results:  
Showing rules list for the selected newsgroup ?

This is a recent regression, and I can't find anything like this when I do a
query, using "filter" word.

Sorry if it is a known bug.

Requesting 1.0 blocker flag because I have to display my account list in filter
message dialog box to get the right list of rules.

Sorry to spam this bug :(

Regression seems to appear on 20 november 2004 build.

I tested a 19 november (downloaded from
"official" nightly of thunderbird, and it works the "right way" :)

Looking at directory name, regression was added between 6:00 am on 19 november
and 5:00 am on 20 november.

The only one related to filter is bug 210614. Is this one guilty here ?

 bug 210614 changes an aspect of applying pop3 filters - it wouldn't have
anything to do with editing news filters.

I was looking for bugfix added on 19 november (after 5:00 am) which could be
guilty :(

Right time, wrong patch :)

Anyway, sorry to bother you ;)

I build a thunderbird with this fix, and it works :)

Thanks for "killing" it :)
David: When did this get checked into trunk? I think it may have caused bug
276812, as there is a small part of the patch missing for mailnews.
Sorry, I got that wrong, the patch for this bug caused the regression that is
reported in bug 276812.
