Description bastiaan 2005-09-15 11:20:25 EDT
Description of problem:
evolution hangs upon display of a message containing a meeting request, while 
'Searching for an existing version of this appointment'. 
Since the current message in my mailbox is a meeting request this has the
consequence that Evolution hangs immediately upon startup, rendering Evolutions
mail component useless. (The other components are still usable if you start
evolution with '-c calendar' etc.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure evolution with an Exchange account with calendar 
2. receive a meeting request
3. try to look at the meeting request
Actual results:
Evolution says 'Searching for an existing version of this appointment' and hangs.

Expected results:
Evolution should not hang, of course.

Comment 1 bastiaan 2005-09-16 15:55:03 EDT
tested again with evolution-2.4.0-2 from Fedora dev, same results. 
The problem can be worked around by turning of the 'Conflict Search' feature in
Mail Preferences->Meetings and Tasks for the Exchange account. Keeping the
search enabled for the local calendar does not cause problems, therefore I'll
move this bug to evolution-connector and lower severity to normal.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-31 11:21:20 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

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

Thanks in advance.
