Sorry I missed the original.

With Fedora 17, I get a problem that goes like this;

Compose a new message
make a To address
change the next address to Cc

Now I am unable to input anything into the Cc line

Right click on the "address area"

select input methods, and change to something else, normally "none" in
my case.

and all is well again.

I get a similar problem with the gimp, so maybe it is a fedora build
of gtk that is upsetting the apple cart

Google "claws mail input method" suggests I may not be alone with this.

Anyway, I am not too concerned, I don't have the problem with any
other distro.

Just another mystery
