Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 236347
evolution displays wrong message in preview pane, hangs on exit
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
I've got evolution-2.10.1-2.fc7. I'm staring at an Evolution window where the
preview contents doesn't match the message I've selected. In fact, regardless
of which message I select, the preview text remains stuck on an old message that
I'm no longer looking at. I've tried disabling and re-enabling the preview,
switching from horizontal to vertical, switching to a different folder, etc.
Nothing works -- the old message stays stuck in the preview window. There are
two status messages below it -- "Formatting message (...)" and "Formatting
message (...)" (i.e., the same message appears twice).
I tried exiting from Evolution to solve this problem, and Evolution hung after I
selected Exit. I don't know if the hang is related to the preview pane problem.
Strace and lsof say that it's repeatedly writing the same message to the file
Can you attach the strace output to the bug?
Sorry, no, I don't have the strace output any more.

Jonathan, are you still seeing this problem? I think I fixed the hang-on-exit
issue awhile back.
I have not seen this problem recently, but as I never figured out how to
reproduce it, I can't say for certain that it's fixed. I suppose you could
close the ticket and I'll reopen it if the problem recurs.
Thanks for responding. Yes, that's what I had in mind. I'll close this as
WORKSFORME for now, but feel free to re-open if you see it again.
