Thanks for the bug report.

As of yesterday, Evolution 2.6 is no longer supported in Fedora Core 5.
Can you please try again with Evolution 2.8 in Fedora Core 6?
Comment 2 Rene van Paassen 2006-11-28 04:21:36 EST
Evolution 2.8 (on x86_64 btw) has the same problem.

Comment 4 Rene van Paassen 2006-12-04 15:00:59 EST
Played around with large tiff files with some scribbles in it. Attached
9000x9000 point file cannot be attached to message in evolution. Evolution uses
some memory for the message (but not all in the machine), and then starts to eat
CPU cycles only. 8500x8500 points message can be attached without problems. 
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-06 19:39:13 EDT
Problem still exists in Evolution 2.12.0.
Comment 6 Milan Crha 2007-10-19 06:25:14 EDT
Based on my investigations, the problem is not in evolution itself, but in
gdk_pixbuf_scale. I added this bug to upstream against evolution [1], because
there could be done some improvement. We can move this bug either against gdk or
close, even closing this will not solve this.

Moving upstream to the bug referenced in comment #6.  Looks like there's at
least a partial solution for this in 2.22.
