    Default Weird Autocompletion error

    We are running ZCS Version 3.1.4_GA_518.RHEL4 Jun 26, 2006. We have a user with a very strange autocompletion error.

    She creates a new email message
    She starts typing a specific email address, mpstaff@here.edu
    Autocompletion pops up and she selects mpstaff@here.edu
    It is added to the To field and all is well so far.
    She starts typing another different address, say kastaff...
    Autocomplete pops up mpstaff@here.edu !
    She types the backspace key to delete it and
    autocomplete inserts another mpstaff@here.edu !!
    One for each Backspace !!!

    I wouldn't believe this if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

    I assume either the contact record is corrupt or the index for the contact records is corrupt. Any suggestions what I should do? Thanks.

    P.S., I also had mpstaff@here.edu in my contact list, but autocomplete works the way one expect after I include them in an email To: field.

    Weird. I wasnt able to repro this -- of course, i'm running the latest build.

    Is this happening consistently? Can you repro it everytime? If so, I would suggest creating a new bug .

    Yes, this user can always repeat it, but it never happens for my account - or anyone else's that I know of. I had her delete the contact and use an alternate address for the person. The problem disappeared, temporarily. It is now back, but for a different user's email address! It sounds very much like the contact file is corrupt. If I export the contact file to .csv and then import it, will that rebuild the file? Or do I need to delete all the contacts before I re-import them? She probably has a very large number of contacts. Any suggestions?

    I should note we have tried all the usual things: exiting firefox, clearing cache, rebooting, trying it from different systems... For her account, the problem is very consistent.

    P.S., Because I can't create the problem on any account except this one, filing a bug report probably is unfair. If they/you can't replicate it, then it would be very difficult to fix. However, if it still occurs after 4.0 is out, I'll call support.
