If I got it right, then when you run evolution in a mail, for example, and then
switch to calendar component, then it hangs and is unresponsive? Or can you
switch back to other component from the calendar one? If it just hang, can you
attach gdb to the evolution process and paste here the result of "thread apply
all bt" command from gdb? Thanks in advance.

After I press the calendar view the whole interface freezes. I cannot switch
back, yet the application is not killed, i have to kill it via the window
manager. I will try this with a brand new account. With same account settings i
cannot duplicate it on i386 (i have make a back up of the evolution settings
(via evolution menu) and imported to x86_64 laptop. 
I seem to not make something as I should in dbg as when i type thread apply all
bt i get 
thread apply all bt

[Thread 0x44369950 (LWP 21043) exited]
[Thread 0x43968950 (LWP 21059) exited]

Program terminated with signal SIGKILL, Killed.
some debug packages I have to install?

Comment 3 Milan Crha 2008-06-19 08:52:11 UTC
Please verify that you've installed debug info packages for evolution,
evolution-data-server, gtkhtml and if you use, then also evolution-exchange.

I guess the command in gdb wasn't processed because it was still running the
application. You can hit Ctrl+C to stop it, or even better, just run evolution
on the console and when it freezes, then on the other console attach gdb to the
evolution process with 'gdb evolution pid', where pid is the process identifier
of the running evolution.

Comment 4 Peter Janakiev 2008-06-20 09:36:33 UTC
I have installed the debug packages with yum.

And i cannot duplicate  it any more after the install. I have removed the
installed packages but still i cannot duplicate it. So I am closing it. If it
shows up again I will try the advised manner to collect info and I will submit
it here.
