[RHEL5.2] Evolution freezes while loading webcal
Last modified: 2010-10-22 20:34:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Evolution freezes for a while when trying to load a calendar stored in Zimbra 5
server, using webcal protocol.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa | grep evolution
Create a webcal connection, using SSL, to a Zimbra 5 server. Make sure the
calendar has at least a few entries. Go to the calendar window, and see
Evolution freezing until it refreshes the data.
Evolution freezes for a few seconds, then works fine for a while until it needs
to refresh the calendar again.
No freezes at all.
Running Evolution in debug mode gives the following output in the log:
(evolution:15824): calendar-gui-CRITICAL **: e_week_view_add_event: assertion
`start < add_event_data->week_view->day_starts[num_days]' failed
I guess this is somehow related.

I doubt it. Sounds like the problem is Evolution is doing blocking network I/O
in the main UI thread. That's generally forbidden for this very reason.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
