Distribution Lists Broken in Kmail 4.1.1

I am running Kmail 1.10.0 under KDE 4.1.1 (Release 26.4) on a 64 bit AMD with the 32 bit versions of Opensuse 11.0 and software installed. When I create a new email and begin typing the name of one of my distribution lists on the "To:" line, it autocompletes with the name of the list, but when I send, it fails to populate the "To:" filed with the addresses in the list. Instead, it assumes that the name of the list is an email address at my local machine (in the form distributionlist@localhostname) and gives me an error message saying that the email will not be sent until that address is deleted.

There was a bug report (Number 148479) filed last summer at

that reported the same problem. I've commented and voted for the report. If anyone else is experiencing the same problem, please vote for this bug. I frequently use this feature, and feel its absence frequently.
