Description of problem:
We've upgraded our Exchange 5.5 server to Exchange 2003, and ldap
queries have become very slow with Thunderbird on Fedora. Using the
default advanced LDAP settings, queries that used to be nearly
instantaneous now take 20+ seconds to complete. Thunderbird on
Solaris, MacOSX and FreeBSD do not seem to have this problem.
Thunderbird version 1.0 (20041206) downloaded from mozilla.org has the
same problem on Fedora.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.query ldap server for address autocompletion
Actual Results: Takes 20 seconds or more for each query
Expected Results: Should be less than 1 second.
Sometimes it locks up my entire Gnome desktop until the query completes.
This doesn't seem to happen with Thunderbird on MacOSX, FreeBSD or Windows.
Only Thunderbird on Linux.
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.
Reporter, could you confirm please, that this bug still could be reproduced with
the updated release of the supported version of Fedora (FC5, FC6, or F7)?
If yes, please, reopen this bug with additional information how it is possible
to reproduce this bug.
In meantime, I have to close this bug as CANTFIX, because it is reported against
not longer supported distribution.
Thanks in advance.
