Description of problem:
Evolution - runnign under kde - fc3 fully yum updated.
Imap mail. Reply - attempt to highlight included email and the
signature thereof - boom crash burn.
Happens every time.
No apparent data loss but makes evolution substantially less usefulf
for responding to email!
Filed in upstream as well:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Reply to email
2.Highlight included text+sig
Actual Results: Crash -> bug buddy
Expected Results: Errm .. not crash?
Bug buddy filed bug as above - gnome.org asked this to be refiled in
ximian buugzilla: Done - now filed upstream
Further - it appears that the problem is needs a signature to trigger
it - both in the included text and possibly also the auto signature of
And, I have not yet tried when running under gnome.
Does it work if you run it under GNOME?
No - it crashes the same way under both KDE and Gnome - I posted a
sample mail upstream which does it for me.
Another crash situation - may be related.
FC3 - updated - running Gnome
1) Open Evolution - go to mail
2) New-> create a blank email
3) Paste in text (haven't zeroned in on the size required, but enough
to cause scrollbar to be active (more than one viewport worth).
3) At the end of the paste, you are seeing the end of the pasted text.
Using the scrollbar, slowly (or fast..) scroll up so you can see the
top of the text.
4) Boom crash blinkout. You will never see the beginning of the pasted
text. No trace of message in drafts or ... when you restart evolution.
Looks like a buffer problem.
Please can you ensure that the gtkhtml3-debuginfo package is
installed, generate a stack backtrace, and attach to this bug; see
