Description of problem:
I'm getting a hang at startup with evolution. An strace seems to indicate that its hanging while trying to talk to orbit? I'll include just the seemingly relevant part here. If you need a complete strace, I can provide it.

and it remains hung here.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evolution-2.2.2-5, evolution-data-server-1.2.2-3

How reproducible:
Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. for me, if I just start evolution it hangs most of the time.
2.
3.
  

Additional info:

This seems to have got progressively worse since installing FC4. At first I didn't have the problem at all (in fact, it never happened with fc4t?) but now it is a constant struggle to read my email. I normally run evolution with a script that first does a --force-shutdown and that has served me well for several years.
Comment 1 Dave Malcolm 2005-06-21 19:36:38 EDT
Please can you install the debuginfo packages for evolution and
evolution-data-server.

More information on doing this can be found here:
http://fedora.linux.duke.edu/wiki/StackTraces

Then please run evolution normally, wait for it to get stuck.  Locate the
evolution and evolution-data-server processses using ps, and then do a "gdb
attach" to each one.  Then please to a "t a a bt" in gdb for each one, and
attach the resulting backtraces to his bug.  This should give an idea what it's
waiting for.

Alternatively to all of the above, what happens if you kill
bonobo-activation-server before launching evolution?  Does it help?

Created attachment 115870 [details]
backtrace of evolution

Here is the requested backtrace. Looks like it's in the free/busy publishing
area and evolution-data-server is not yet running. At least I can disable it
and get mail reading working again.
Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2006-12-31 12:24:09 EST
Does the reported hang still occur in Fedora Core 6?
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-31 11:22:27 EDT
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
bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

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

Thanks in advance.
