Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 404541
application freeze when trying to send email
Last modified: 2008-01-15 13:08:58 EST
Description of problem:
Basically spam test are taking too long and making application freeze for couple
of minutes! But when I accidentally press 'send' button while evolution is
receiving new emails, it freezes and I need to kill application.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
latest from fedora.download.com
Steps to Reproduce:
1. write email
2. send it while application is receiving something in the background
application freeze and email is lost (after restart of course it allows me to
recover an email, but... recovered email doesn't have my text, I've typed).
working smoothly... without freezes and hangs - it's really annoying.
Can you install debug info packages of evolution, evolution-data-server and
gtkhtml (and evolution-exchange, if you use exchange) and when it freezes,
attach gdb to the process and attach here result of command "thread apply all
bt", please? We will see where it get stuck. Thanks in advance.
Also, which spam filtering plugin are you using -- SpamAssassin or Bogofilter?
If SpamAssassin, it turns out the behavior for the "Include remote tests" option
is inverted -- it runs remote tests if the option is UNCHECKED. Remote tests
make spam filtering more accurate but can really slow things down.
I fixed this upstream just recently but it hasn't trickled down yet.
I believe it's fixed in current release as it works fine for me now.
Thanks for the update. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
