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

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.

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.
