Thanks for the bug report.  Please can you supply a backtrace of what evolution
is doing when it hangs?

You can find information on how to do this here:

Connection with gdb to the hanging evolution process gives:

This happened with a mail I wanted to reply to. The mail itself resides on a
mail server which I access with evolution via IMAP.

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!

Is this problem still present in Fedora Core 6?
Comment 6 Andreas Spengler 2007-01-01 06:08:20 EST
No. IIRC, it was fixed with Core 5 already...
Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-01 07:04:04 EST
Thanks for responding.  Closing per comment #6.

Feel free to re-open this bug if you encounter the same problem in Fedora Core 6
or later.
