Description Nils Philippsen 2002-08-15 02:26:48 EDT
Description of Problem:

When the system (I don't know whether it's client or server, because my machine
serves is both) under hevaier load (i.e. installing a bunch of RPMs), the
modemlioghts applet sometimes fials to check my inbox.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How Reproducible:

Fairly easy I hope (it's happened a number of times to me in the last few days)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup your system to monitor inbox via IMAP (preferrably on same system?)
2. Put system under (constant) load
3. Wait

Actual Results:

Message appears that inbox couldn't be checked

Expected Results:

Inbox gets checked properly

Additional Information:
I guess it's running on some timeout, as I can find the following in the logs:

Aug 15 08:12:15 wombat imapd[3915]: Login user=nils
host=wombat.dialup.fht-esslingen.de []
Aug 15 08:12:15 wombat imapd[3915]: Command stream end of file, while reading

I'm assuming you mean the "inbox monitor" not the modemlights applet?

Uhm yes. It's been a bit late that night.
