Description Tim Waugh 2008-11-02 07:17:58 EST
Description of problem:
I have two emails with image attachments.  After clicking on the expanders for each image in one of them, looking at the other email and clicking on the expanders shows me the images I just viewed instead of the images attached to the email.  Opening them each in external viewers shows the correct image.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open first email, click on each expander for the attached images
2.Open second email, click on each expander for the attached images
Actual results:
Second email appears to contain the same images as the first.

Expected results:
Different set of images is seen.

I guess they have the same name, right? It seems it has, and Evo uses the same cache file. Just to check, when you do this in the opposite order, then you'll see the images of the second mail in the first one, right? It's possible it'll require clear Evolution's cache, it's located in ~/.evolution/cache/, probably in the tmp subfolder, if it's an inline attachment.

Viewing them in the opposite order does show the second set of images in place of the first, yes.

They don't appear to have the same name.  The MIME attachments all have different filenames in the message source.

Closing evolution and re-opening it is enough to "reset" it so that either set of images may be viewed, but of course once they have been viewed, the other set appears to be the same as the set just viewed.

That sounds strange now. Is it possible to strip private information from the messages and attach them here? Of course only if the picture itself isn't private information. Or I can try to create my own mails, but I would like to see the message parts tree of both of them (message structure, I meant).
Comment 5 Milan Crha 2008-11-03 08:08:25 EST
Thanks for the data. I can see this with your version of Evolution. It works as expected in 2.25.1. I'll try to find what's going wrong in
Comment 6 Milan Crha 2008-11-03 12:44:07 EST
Weird, I cannot get why it does work incorrectly in, but it works correctly in 2.24.2 for me.

So has this been fixed, and therefore closed as current release?
