Description of problem:
If I write a mail and try to close it using the system menu (cross in the upper right corner of the window) I get a first dialog which says "You changed something" (I have the german version so I don't know how it is written in the english version in German it is "Warnung: GeÃ¤nderte Nachricht").
This is still ok, but about 2 seconds later I get another dialog window, which says, that the message window is not responding (Title: Warnung Message: Das Fenster >>yoursubject<< reagiert nicht).
This second window should not occur, because the window doesn't hang, it is just waiting for user input. I don't know if this is a general problem in gnome event handling or if it is just an event which should be handeled by evolution, but isn't at the moment. I suppose the last is the reason.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open evolution
2. create a new mail
3. type something
4. try to close the window using the system menu (upper right corner in the title bar)
5. wait until you see the two message dialogs (should happen within 5 seconds)
Actual Results: gnome seems to think the window doesn't respond to the "system menu close"-event and displays a message to resolve the situation.
Expected Results: The close event obviously is hadeled so this second message is not necessary. Evolution is just waiting for user interaction
It's not critical, but it is ugly. At first I thought Evolution would really hang. For an inexperienced user this looks like a fatal error occured. It will probably also lead to thinking that evolution is not stable software, which I think is not true of course. Evolution is great :o)
...and FC5 too, of course. Except for the devicemapper- and bootloader-install hell, I had to go through several times :o(
I was surprised how much faster FC5 starts up. Also after login the session is available faster.
