Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1012433
Avatar image caching is not asynchronous
Last modified: 2014-09-13 14:58:05 EDT
Due to the avatar image caching not being done asynchronously, gnome-shell can freeze if you add a chat account with lots and lots of contacts (eg., Google or Facebook).
This has been fixed upstream. We should backport it to RHEL7.
Waiting for bug 1081520 to be fixed.

this is not a dependency, there is a workaround there in bug 1081520#c10 and this has nothing to do with that as can be verified using other accounts as well.
I don't see any Facebook avatars in new (telepathy-glib-0.20.4-5.el7.x86_64), nor old (telepathy-glib-0.20.4-1.el7.x86_64) telepathy-glib. I see only Google Plus avatars.
I run: rm -r ~/.cache and added Facebook and Google accounts.
I haven't noticed any GS freeze in old or new version. Avatars just become gradually available in about a minute. I have tested GS Activities search and Empathy.
