Description Jonathan Kamens 2007-04-13 07:54:52 EDT
I've got evolution-2.10.1-2.fc7. I'm staring at an Evolution window where the preview contents doesn't match the message I've selected. In fact, regardless of which message I select, the preview text remains stuck on an old message that I'm no longer looking at. I've tried disabling and re-enabling the preview, switching from horizontal to vertical, switching to a different folder, etc. Nothing works -- the old message stays stuck in the preview window. There are two status messages below it -- "Formatting message (...)" and "Formatting message (...)" (i.e., the same message appears twice). I tried exiting from Evolution to solve this problem, and Evolution hung after I selected Exit. I don't know if the hang is related to the preview pane problem. Strace and lsof say that it's repeatedly writing the same message to the file /tmp/orbit-jik/linc-6317-0-44fd0459b9c94.

Can you attach the strace output to the bug?
Comment 2 Jonathan Kamens 2007-04-17 16:49:44 EDT
Sorry, no, I don't have the strace output any more.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-04 12:32:04 EDT
Moving to F8Target Jonathan, are you still seeing this problem? I think I fixed the hang-on-exit issue awhile back.
Comment 4 Jonathan Kamens 2007-10-07 02:23:46 EDT
I have not seen this problem recently, but as I never figured out how to reproduce it, I can't say for certain that it's fixed. I suppose you could close the ticket and I'll reopen it if the problem recurs.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-07 09:58:20 EDT
Thanks for responding. Yes, that's what I had in mind. I'll close this as WORKSFORME for now, but feel free to re-open if you see it again.
