Description of problem:
Evolution data server uses an extremely large amount of memory.
With about 20 tasks, 50 contacts, and 50 calendar entries EDS is using
550 MB, and the resident size is 176MB when it's idle and about 220MB
when it is adding a task.
When I try to enter an email address in a new message, I can type
about 4 characters before evolution pauses for about a minute. During
this time EDS is swapping in in order to show me the matches for the
name I'm typing. When entering a new task in evolution the wait is
about the same (or longer) while EDS swaps in. This is on a laptop
with 512MB of RAM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Try to use evolution contacts and tasks on a laptop.
Actual Results: Very long waits during various activities.
Expected Results: EDS should respond quickly, not using nearly that
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.
Seems like it isn't a problem in FC5.
