Message > Save address only searches in boot volume

Has a Patch: yes Platform: All


The "Save address" functionality searches for an existing Person with that address before creating a new one, but it only searches the boot volume.

I keep my people and mail files on a different BFS partition, so I can completely wipe out my boot volume without losing any essential data. So this menu item keeps creating a new Person, even when I have an existing Person with that email address.

I have attached a patch that searches all BFS volumes. (Well, technically, all volumes for which BVolume::KnowsQuery() returns true, which I believe is just BFS volumes.)

Patch applied in hrev40258. Thanks!

I keep the old predicate string because it can be used as-is to as argument for People app to set new person file email address. Plus the arg string size with == was one byte too short.

Could you tell us what's your actual name so I can add you to AboutSystem contributors list?
