Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 223877
Crash on entering address into To field
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Composing mail messages frequently (almost always) crashes all of Evolution.
bug-buddy doesn't finish because it claims that the app (it think it's the
calendar) doesn't track its bugs in Gnome bugzilla.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
90% of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose a mail
2. Type something into the To: field
Crash of all of Evolution.
No crash :)
I've attached what bug-buddy wanted to submit. I can install debuginfo packages
as necessary. I've got two IMAP accounts set up and my homedir is on NFS.

Thanks for the bug report and apologies for not getting to this sooner.
Are you still seeing these crashes in FC6? What about in FC7Test3?
If you could install evolution-debuginfo and evolution-data-server-debuginfo,
and then post another backtrace if and when you see the crash again that would
be very useful to me. From your first backtrace I'm guessing that an error
occurred while reading contact information, and as a result of poor error
handling in Evolution an invalid pointer is being passed to a strcmp() call,
which is enough to crash a program. But debuginfo packages would help me know

Not a problem.

I haven't been seeing in rawhide so I had been ignoring my FC6 box where I had
the troubles. However, trying just now I can't duplicate anymore. Sweet. The
machine evidently now has:
