Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-20 01:04:37 UTC
What version-release number are you using?

Comment 2 Trever Adams 2007-04-20 21:06:46 UTC
I was afraid I had forgoten that. evolution-2.10.1-4.fc7.

Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2007-05-15 19:46:22 UTC
I'm hitting the same problem now.

Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-05-15 20:34:50 UTC
I'm seeing a deadlock, not a crash.  The traceback doesn't show a crash either.

Comment 6 Andrew Overholt 2007-05-15 20:35:46 UTC
Yeah, I'm seeing a deadlock as well.

Comment 7 Trever Adams 2007-05-15 20:39:13 UTC
Whatever it is, bugbuddy came up. It stalls (hangs) for about 1 minute before
bug buddy shows up for me.

Comment 8 Matthew Barnes 2007-05-15 21:02:39 UTC
Ah, maybe I wasn't waiting long enough then.

Comment 9 Andrew Overholt 2007-05-15 21:16:34 UTC
Bugbuddy never came up for me.  I waited for a long time.

Comment 10 Matthew Barnes 2007-05-16 21:20:37 UTC
Should be fixed in evolution-2.10.1-17.fc7.

This turned out to be another game of "who owns the message and when should it
be freed?", just like bug #220714 and others like it were.  I've had a patch
waiting in the wings for some time that makes Evolution's message passing use
reference counting to track ownership of the messages, rather than the
convoluted logic that's there now.

The patch fixes the crash but it's a bit experimental.  If you guys could help
me test this over the next few days I'd appreciate it, since we're in the final
stretch for Fedora 7 now and I'm a bit nervous about putting this in at the 11th

Please post comments here if you see any regressions that you think might be
related to this.

Comment 11 Andrew Overholt 2007-05-17 14:53:56 UTC
This build fixes the bad cert issue for me.  I'll continue using it and see if I
notice any other problems.  Thanks!

Comment 12 Will Woods 2007-05-19 17:45:28 UTC
Can you confirm that this is fixed with the updated evolution package Matthew
mentioned, available here:


Comment 13 Trever Adams 2007-05-20 23:11:21 UTC
I have changed my email accounts in such a way that I no longer see the bug. (It
was only hitting if I had two accounts on the same server or two servers with
bad certs... I no longer have that.)

I am sorry I cannot test further. If others say it fixes the problem, then that
is good enough I guess.

Comment 14 Matthew Barnes 2007-05-20 23:17:41 UTC
Closing based on comment #11 and my own testing.

Feel free to reopen this bug if you encounter these crashes again.
