Description Shawn M. Jones 2003-04-25 09:27:15 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225 Description of problem: Sometimes, when evolution hangs (seems like it doesn't handle IMAPS so well), I have to kill it with the 'killev' command. I also run 'oaf-slay' in order to terminate the oafd processes it runs. I get the following error from running oaf-slay: panic: end_shift at /usr/bin/oaf-slay line 138. and the oafd process continues to run. I also get this error if I try runnining oaf-slay for any other reason (i.e. to list processes). In short, oaf-slay doesn't seem to work at all. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): oaf-0.6.10-5 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start evolution (which starts oafd) 2. Execute 'killev' on the command line interface of your choice (which kills all the evolution processes) 3. Execute 'oaf-slay' on the command line interface of your choice Viola! It doesn't work. Actual Results: I get the following error from running oaf-slay: panic: end_shift at /usr/bin/oaf-slay line 138. Expected Results: oaf-slay should have killed the oafd process and NOT generated an error message. Additional info: I have found this on two installations of Red Hat Linux 9, both different x86 architectures (one is an Athlon, the other is a P4). Both have different package lists installed. Both use evolution to attach to different mail servers, so it seems that this is definitely a bug in oaf itself and not just the system configuration.

I have this same problem. Platform, Intel Pentium 4.
Comment 2 Víctor Martínez-Moll 2003-06-25 07:19:02 EDT
I have the same problem. Platform AMD Athlon Evolution does not start after a gnome logout. If then I truy to run oaf-slay, I get: panic: end_shift at /usr/bin/oaf-slay line 138
Comment 3 Alfonso Landin 2003-07-14 07:38:48 EDT
I get the same output from oaf-slay. Except if i execute it with the -h option, when i get the usage message. Any other options results in the same output. bonobo-slay has the same problem, but with a different line number. Except if i give a regex at the input. But with the '*' regexp and -l i get a "No processes." ouput (dont know if this is the correct behavior, evolution and nautilus are running). Any option other than -h w/out a regex wil result in the next output: panic: end_shift at /usr/bin/bonobo-slay line 147.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2003-10-09 00:07:03 EDT
Evolution in rawhide uses bonobo-activation instead and seems to work fine for me.
