Summary: Message menu in Evolution extremely difficult to use
Product: openSUSE 12.2
Version: RC 1

The Message menu in Evolution has grown so large (using default settings) that
the top option, Compose New Message, now covers the menu bar when you open the
Message menu. Worse, if you simply click to open the menu, the menu will open
on mouse down and then Compose New Message will be selected on mouse up. So
clicking on the Menu button actually just opens a new email.
The workaround is to hold the mouse button down when clicking on the menu,
which will open the menu without selecting Compose New Message so long as you
do not release the mouse button. You can then move the mouse off of Compose
New Message in order to select other menu options. However, in this case it is
not possible to mouse over to any menus to the right of Message (Folder,
Search, or Help) without closing the menu by clicking elsewhere in the
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Evolution.
2. Click on the Message menu.
Compose New Message window opens.
The Message dropdown menu opens.
I'm using a 1368x768 monitor, like most laptop users. I can't imagine this
would be an issue on larger monitors.
I can't provide a screenshot because apparently the Gnome screenshot function
doesn't work when a menu is opened, which seems like a bug in itself....
