Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 297631
Beagle causing Evolution to hang when adding attachments
Last modified: 2008-05-02 23:29:00 EDT
Description of problem:
After applying a big batch of updates to an FC6 machine, the user reported to me
that Evolution hung when she tried to add an attachment to a mail.
I installed the debuginfo package, ran gdb and saw that it was waiting on a
Beagle-related process. If I killed beagled, Evolution became responsive again
and I was able to send the message, with the attachment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compose a new mail in Evolution
2. Add an attachment
Evolution hangs, waiting for the Beagle process to complete
Should be able to add attachment normally
Created attachment 200641 [details]
