Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 450934
mail-notification crashes straight away after starting
Last modified: 2009-07-14 13:54:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Mail-notification applet crashes straight away after starting, doesn't matter if
executed as a part of desktop startup, or started manually from command line.
It started happening after installing latest Fedora 9 updates.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Execute it and wait for bug-buddy.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Wait for bug-buddy to announce a crash
3. File a bug to bugzilla :)
When started from command line:
[evad@D620 ~]$ mail-notification
51d495e2-e720-a2ee-59e557ea-664801c2 is dumped
Additionally I attach bug-buddy report.
Created attachment 308984 [details]
Bug-buddy report of the crash
Forgot to mention: after executing mail-notification, mailboxes are actually
checked, as I can see mail notifications. That is happening while (or just
before) bug-buddy kicks in.
What version was before the update?
Does "full uninstall then install again" help?
What type of mailboxes do you use?

> What version was before the update?
I don't know.
> Does "full uninstall then install again" help?
I'll try once I'm back home (I don't have F9 on my office laptop).
> What type of mailboxes do you use?
1xIMAP and 1xGmail. Always used to work fine.
OK, I've managed to nail the problem down. It turned out it only crashes when
trying to check Gmail account. Other IMAP account works fine. Gmail - crash
OK, send it upstream...
Could you pleease report this issue to the upstream bug tracker,
I can't do it at the moment. I'm just about to leave away on holiday-break for
two weeks, and my time is currently limited. I might be able to do it over the
holiday time, but I can't promise.
Sorry about that :(
What if run in cmdline in "C" locale? Ie.:
While the upstream has not fixed it, the work-around could be to access Gmail by POP (pop3 protocol)...
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
