Description Jonathan Underwood 2008-06-08 12:38:39 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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure an exchange server account
2.Compose a new message
3.Fry an egg on the CPU.

Aha, seems also to be seen on Ubuntu:


I can confirm that I do not have a GAL server entry when I see this bug.
Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2008-06-08 12:57:12 EDT
Does the gnome-keyring-daemon process start freaking out too?
Comment 3 Jonathan Underwood 2008-06-08 13:21:37 EDT
Yes, it does.
Comment 4 Jonathan Underwood 2008-06-08 13:24:13 EDT
In /var/log/messages I see a lot of:

Jun  8 18:21:29 localhost gnome-keyring-daemon[2734]: couldn't read 4 bytes from

And actually, just now evolution just totally hung, as described in BZ #354041
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2008-07-08 12:27:18 EDT
Give evolution-data-server-2.22.3-2.fc9 a try.  I think that might help.  Should
be landing in F9 updates-testing shortly.
