In version 0.8.5 (I use kiax RPM from Fedora Extras) when I put call number by hand in a "Contacts" tab and press enter nothing happens (except a fact that number is cleared).
In "Dialpad" tab it work correctly. AFAIR in 0.8.5pre compiled from sources I din't have that problem.
Is it a bug or a feature?
Strange.. I guess it is a bug that I didnt notice. I'll try to reproduce it. Thanks for reporting.
