Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 450451
evolution-exchange consumes 100% CPU
Last modified: 2008-07-23 03:06:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Starting evolution with an exchange account configured causes massive CPU useage
by evolution-exchange as soon as a message composition window is opened (even if
not associated with the exchange account). CPU useage remains high until
evolution itself is closed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa | grep evolution
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure an exchange server account
2.Compose a new message
3.Fry an egg on the CPU.

In /var/log/messages I see a lot of:
Jun 8 18:21:29 localhost gnome-keyring-daemon: couldn't read 4 bytes from
And actually, just now evolution just totally hung, as described in BZ #354041
Give evolution-data-server-2.22.3-2.fc9 a try. I think that might help. Should
be landing in F9 updates-testing shortly.
