Description of problem:
When I log out of gnome, with evolution running, evolution does not
save its status properly.

When I log back in later, evolution is opened by the session
management (as expected) but the window happens to be slightly smaller
(both horizontally and vertically). After three or four logins I'm
getting annoyed by the small window and have to enlarge it by hand.

Additionally, evolution does not remember which mails I've read so far
in the current folder, and shows those as unread again, which I've
read after I switched to that folder until gnome logout.

When I terminate evolution by clicking the [x] icon or choosing "quit"
from the "file" menu, this behaviour does not occur.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evolution 2.0.x

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start evolution, read some mail, but don't switch folder after that.
2. Log out of Gnome, without quitting evolution first.
3. Log in again.

Actual Results:  The evolution window is a little bit smaller than
before and the mail you've just read is unread again.

Expected Results:  The evolution window should have the same size as
it was before and the mail you've already read should not be marked as

Additional info:
Verified this behaviour on FC3/x86_64 and on FC2/i386.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

The distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported,
could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently
supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue
turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If
after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
