Additional info:

Comment 1 Tom Duffy 2005-07-11 19:36:28 UTC
after some further investigation, this seems to be happening if evolution is
trying to start with anything *other* than mail.  I am able to get mail to start
by issuing the command:

$ evolution --component=mail

Comment 2 Lars G 2005-07-13 13:19:15 UTC
same here

Comment 3 Tom Duffy 2005-07-29 18:13:43 UTC
this seems to be fixed by chance in latest evolution-2.3.6-1.  should I close?

Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2005-07-29 18:56:17 UTC
Looks like a problem with libgal2, which should now be fixed.

Good to hear that it's working for you now; I'm going to close this one.  Thanks.
