Description of problem:
evolution-data-server crashes when using the search functionality in the task
view within Evolution.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start up evolution
2. switch to task view
3. enter search term
4. hit enter or preform search
evolution-data-server reportedly crashes
search result returned succesfully
I was able to reproduce this on an x86_64 machine, but not on a i386. Both
machines were running evolution-126.96.36.199 and evolution-data-server-1.7.2. Will
I can no longer reproduce this at all with evolution-2.8.0 and
David, are you still seeing this problem?
I am indeed still seeing a crash while doing a search in the task context. What
information do you require my good sir and I shall provide
A backtrace for evolution-data-server would be very helpful. My access to a
64-bit machine is pretty limited at the moment. TIA.
Probably easiest to attach GDB to a running session:
$ gdb --pid `/sbin/pidof evolution-data-server-1.8`

backtrace of unwelcome crash
I'm unsure if this is indeed the crash we want because now it crashes when I
switch to the task view rather than search and my tasks are all gone. I did a
evolution --force-shutdown to ensure a clean restart and the same thing
It doesn't look like the backtrace is showing a crash. All three threads are
stuck in __GI___poll(). Did the attachment get clipped somehow?
Created attachment 136903 [details]
Maybe, I recaptured the crash with bug-buddy in the hope that this time the
backtrace might be useful.
This one seems to have gone away.
