Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 343791
evolution forgets about subscriptions
Last modified: 2008-12-10 10:44:50 EST
at the moment, this makes evolution completely useless to me:
Description of problem:
Sometimes (I can't figure out by what its triggered) evolution does not show
some of the subscribed folders. If you show at the subscriptions list they are
still selected. Even worse, if you try to deselect/select them evolution
crashes. Next start again some folders are missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start evolution
2. miss some folders
3. try to deselect/select them again
somedays you can't read for example the fedora-devel folder. sometimes your
work-email folder is missing etc.
All folders should always be visible.
I'm not an IMAP expert, so I don't know if that could be server side. But
thunderbird works fine (but misses the good gnome integration and pgp) so I
assume evolution could at least be less sensitive about that.
Is this problem still present in Fedora 8 Test 3 or later?
At the moment I can't reproduce this bug with the live cd (which is not a good
way for hardcore usage of evolution).
So I have to wait until f8 is out to test it in "real work".
Thanks for responding. Leaving this in NEEDINFO state to help me track it.
I think F8 is now in the real production, right?
Please reply at least in one month, otherwise I will have to close this bug as
INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
I have not seen that behavior about 1 month f8 usage. So I think we can be quite
sure its gone.
thank you for the reminder
Good to hear. Thanks for the update.
Ok, never say never, as Sean said :(
Here we are again. This time I know how to reproduce:
1. change the list of subscribed folders (I did it manually on the server, but
an other client like thunderbird should do the same) by adding a new folder
2. start evolution: You don't see the new folder
3. click on 'subscribed folders' you'll see the new folder marked. (sidenote:
evolution will probably crash, if you do something now)
4. Restart evolution
5. _all_ folders gone now
6. rm -rf ~/.evolution/mail/imap/<YOURMAILACCOUNT>
7. restart evolution
8. evolution reloads the folders
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
Have you seen this bug in Fedora 9 or 10?
I could not reproduce the bug by following the steps in comment #7. I closed Evolution, started Thunderbird, created a new folder on an IMAP account, closed Thunderbird, started Evolution.
Evolution correctly displayed the new folder in both the folder tree and the subscription editor. No crash, either.
Closing as INSUFFICENT_DATA since the reporter hasn't responded and my own testing suggests the bug no longer exists.
