Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 100801
evolution hangs when loading attachment
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Installed evolution-1.4.3-3 and used with an existing email archive from 1.2.x
(Red Hat Linux 9). Home directory is NFS mounted, but when I try to attach a
file in /tmp, the evolution becomes non-responsive and can only be killed (or
metacity? will say that the application is not responding after a couple of
minutes and ask if you want to kill it).
I have consistently reproduced it in my environment.
Problem still shows up with 1.4.3-5
Can you attach to it with gdb and get a backtrace?
Will try to do so.. I did not recieve the email from bugzilla because of the Red
Hat email burp.

BackTrace of Hung Evolution
Here is the backtrace. I have moved the system to RHEL-2.9.5 and replicated it
I do not think the problem is evolution limited.. but I do not know where it is.
dia also freezes in a similar call _dl_sysinfo_int80 in a futex.. the only
application I had seen consistent futex lockups was rpm before.
I think the culprit may be
#8 0x0021d332 in libgnomeui_module_info_get () from /usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.so.0
but I am not sure.. please let me know how I can debug better.
Does the new ORBit2 at http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/ORBit2/ help (for
cambridge only) / have you continued to see this with evolution 1.4.5?
I have switched all my systems to Taroon.. since then. I have not been able to
duplicate with taroon
[smooge@glasya smooge]$ rpm -q evolution ORBit2
Okay, guessing either it's a) the ORBit2 locking bug or b) something fixed in
1.4.4 or later
