Description of problem: If pan is asked to go into a busy group it has been
into before, but that is not subscribed to, it seems to download all of the new
headers for the group, and then hangs. It uses all the CPU it can get, but
never seems to accomplish anything. My guess is infinite loop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: It seems to happen whenever the number of new headers is
larger than a certain number. I think it is in the low thousands, but I'm not sure.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter an unsuscribed newsgroup that is fairly busy, the binary groups are good.
2. Wait a week or two.
3. Go back into the group. Pan should hang.
Actual results: Hang.
Expected results: Header pane is active with all new headers.
Additional info: Version of pan in Fedora7 works fine.
Fedora 7 has the same pan release as upcoming F8 has, for which you reported
this bug. So on F7 current pan works properly without the described bahaviour?
The new version of pan, 132-2 that fixed the problem with the large jpg files
seems to have fixed this as well. It is slower than F7, but the group does come
up after a while with the header pane properly filled.
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.
If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
