Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2006-11-06 22:59:25 EST
Thanks David.  From the backtrace I recognize this as one of my own patches, yet
I've not seen the crash myself.  Does this happen every time or occasionally?
Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2006-11-07 10:49:37 EST
It happened all day yesterday so I had to use Thunderbird (yuck!). Then this
morning I started Evolution as part of my daily routine... and now it works.
Comment 5 David Zeuthen 2006-11-13 12:40:26 EST
It started happening again. Then I updated to

 evolution               i386       2.9.2-2.fc7      development        13 M
 evolution-data-server   i386       1.9.2-3.fc7      development       3.4 M
Updating for dependencies:
 evolution-data-server-devel  i386       1.9.2-3.fc7      development       489 k

and it still happens. Back to TB (yuck!).
Comment 6 David Zeuthen 2006-11-14 17:57:43 EST
This also happens on my workstation now


My workstation is in the Westford RH office. Let me know if you need access.
Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2006-11-16 16:29:48 EST
This started happening consistently for me after I upgraded my Rawhide machine
past FC6.  I never once saw the crash when running FC6 + Evo 2.9.  Rawhide is
pretty borked in general at the moment, so I'm not sure what to make of this.

This is the backtrace I get. Interestingly it only happens on my user account,
a fresh evolution just works. I need my email! ;-) Yell if you need anything.
Comment 9 Matthew Barnes 2007-03-15 00:35:21 EDT
David, I think this may be the same issue as reported in bug #220714, which was
fixed in evolution-2.9.91-3.fc7 (released Feb 15).  Have you seen this crasher
again recently or are you still on Thunderbird?

Richard's backtrace looks like a different bug.  I'll try to find a bug report
with a similar backtrace, or else open a new one.
Comment 10 David Zeuthen 2007-03-15 14:36:36 EDT
Actually, sorry, I "fixed" this by deleting the offending mail ages ago and have
been using Evolution error since. So I guess we can close as WORKSFORME?
Comment 11 Matthew Barnes 2007-03-15 14:49:55 EDT
Okay.  The backtraces look very similar to those in bug #220714, so I'll close
this as a dupe instead.
