autocomplete hang when LDAP server not available
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 (ax) Mnenhy/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 (ax) Mnenhy/0.7 I am configured to use a LDAP server internal to my company's network. If the LDAP server is not available (or I'm not in the office and the VPN is not up), TB hangs for about 15 seconds on EACH TO: entry for the autocomplete to try the LDAP server. This is *very* annoying. (I tend to connect the VPN just to avoid it) Suggested fixes: 1. Don't block on the LDAP connect. I think this is what OE does. 2. Cache a LDAP failure. If it fails, don't try again on the next address in the same message or for a certain amount of time. 3. Allow a configurable LDAP timeout. I'm surprised this isn't a known bug.... I did search for it, Honest! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Ensure TB is configured to use LDAP and the server is not available. 2. Compose new message 3. Start typing in the TO: field
