Description Lauri Nurmi 2007-10-26 11:48:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Selecting and showing an HTML email from amazon.com takes something like 30 to
60 seconds on my AMD Sempron 2500+, with CPU usage at ~100% during that time.

There is no obvious reason for this; the emails are not particularly long, nor 
have particularly many images.

The situation has not always been like this.  At some point, about a year ago,
something in Amazon's emails changed and they became painfully slow to load in
Evolution. (The old emails are still quick to load.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subcsribe to receive amazon.com email ads.
2. View them in Evolution.
3. Wait.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Can you attach a sample email as an mbox file so I can import it to try to
reproduce the delay?  Sanitize the contents of the email as necessary.

Amazon HTML email ad that loads very slowly in Evolution

My personal email addresses changed to myaddress@something.example and
myotheraddress@elsewhere.example. Otherwise intact.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-26 21:39:03 EDT
Thanks, I can reproduce this somewhat.  Only takes about 5 to 10 seconds on my
machine with Evolution 2.12.1, which is half as fast as yours.

proposed gtkhtml patch

for gtkhtml;

with this patch, it takes only a little time to display, and i didn't realize
any visual difference between the time before and after patch, maybe it can be
patched in this way. (The patch is without ChangeLog entry and so on because
the gnome's bugzilla is down today).

Moving this upstream where we will continue to track the problem.
