Description Abhay S. Kushwaha 2012-11-09 05:42:27 CET
Observed behaviour:
Select a message. Press the keyboard combo (or right-click and select the option) to move the message, which brings up the "Select folder" dialog box. If you click "New" there to create a new folder, the dialog box that pops up to take the new folder's name is "behind" the "Select folder" dialog box, that is, not directly accessible to the user (say, using a mouse).

Expected behaviour:
The folder that takes the new folder's name should be atop the "Select folder" dialog and normally accessible.

Bug #2754 (http://www.thewildbeast.co.uk/claws-mail/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2754) is also a minor RFE that could be addressed while fixing this bug.

This problem does not happen on Windows for the very first time this dialog box comes up after starting Claws-Mail. Only from second time onwards. Maybe this will provide some clue into what's happening?
