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.

evolution 2.6.2 leaves processes running after closing.
workaround - wrapper script to kill the dangling processes still running after
Moving to FC5 as per comment #2. Thanks!
(clearing needinfo bit.)
This is a feature, not a bug. The notify daemon stays running so that one still
receives things like calendar reminders from Evo even when the main Evo apps are
closed. The notify daemon (I believe), the Clock applet's calendar/task list,
and lots of other apps now rely on EDS, thus EDS also stays open.
Also, to quell any memory concerns, using the new "Memory" column from Gnome
System Monitor 2.15.91 under FC6-test, EDS and evo-alarm-notify only chew up 5
and 1.5 MB of memory, respectively. This new column is intended to show the
"true" memory usage of apps - see this bug:
Closing as NOTABUG per comment #5.
