Build Identifier: 

I have the 'Address Book' open (Window > Address Book) and the 'Select 
Addresses' window open (Compose > Options > Select Addresses...). On 
the 'Address Book' window, do a search for 'smith' (or some other name which 
will return results). Now go to the 'Select Addresses' window but keep 
the 'Address Book' open and in view (albeit in the background). Do a search 
for 'smith' or whatever you searched for before.

You'll notice that the results appear correct on the window that is currently 
selected, but the results to this window get duplicated to the 'Address Book' 
window in the background. You'll notice that if you switch these windows, the 
same thing occurs. Whilst I haven't tried, this might occur for other 
situations where LDAP results are shown.

It only works when you are searching for the same name.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Address Book (Window > Address Book)
2. Open Select Addresses (Compose > Options > Select Adddresses)
3. Search for 'smith' in Select Addresses. Keep this window open.
4. Search for 'smith' in Address Book.

Actual Results:  
The results to step 4 get added to the results found on step 3 (which means 
that get duplicated seeing as you have to be searching for the same string for 
this to occur).

Expected Results:  
The software should only have populated the screen which is topmost. Any other 
search results (albeit for the same search) should not be effected.
