"2.1pre" (RC2) and search results--can't do much in "Search Messages" window

I am running RC2 on Windows 7, 64-bit and find that when I use the 
"search messages" window, there is very little I can do with the listed 
search results.

Click, double-click, and right-click do nothing on a search result item.

While I can select any search result item, and highlight it, I can't 
open it with the "Open" button.  (I can however delete it with the 
"Delete" button.  "Open Message Folder" will open a new message window 
with the message selected.))

This is stuff I used to do all the time with earlier versions of 
SeaMonkey (such as 2.0), so this is very worrisome.

Confirm w/Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0.1)
Gecko/20110531 Firefox/4.0.1 SeaMonkey/2.1pre

Recommend filing a bug report. When you do I'll add to it noting the
same issue w/linux.

Known, and fixed for the SeaMonkey 2.2 (due in ~1 month):
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=660882>

Unfortunately it was found too late to be fixed for 2.1.

Thanks Jens. My 'bug search foo' must be off as I couldn't find it when
I searched.

Then I might just as well stay on 2.0.14 and wait,
unless the workarounds are real easy.
   Easier than:
  1. - search messages
  2. - Mark/flag all messages in list
  3. - return to total list
  4. - sort on marks/flags, to get all the messages
      from the search contiguous
  5. - Do whatever actions on selections from this
      sublist. ( sorting won't work. But it doesn't
      work flexibly anyway)
  6. - Clear flags
  7. - Fix up sorting, et.c. of the original message
       list.
============
  8. - Grumble, grumble

How long and stretchable is that ~1 month?
Software delivery dates have a habit of slipping!

P.s I do wish there was an option to enable, let,
the search pattern be a regular expression.

If I can get the 2.2 beta 1 out in a reasonable time, without too much 
problems, I can probably be persuaded to write an addon to "fix" this 
bug for 2.1 users.

I make no guarantees though.

Understood. You are an unpaid volunteer.

Question: But how did 2.1 pass the in-house regression test suite
with that bug? It isn't exactly an obscure edge case, which only
a perverse user would stumble into, nor new features which needed
new test cases .

Everyone in the SeaMonkey project is.

We have almost no tests for MailNews - help wanted to write some!

Open Message Folder does work and does open a new window with the proper 
message selected (but only if your view filter includes it), from which 
point you can do anything.  Awkward, yes, but not too difficult.
