Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 476309
Mail notification enters 100% cpu usage when it can't connect
Last modified: 2008-12-15 07:32:02 EST
Description of problem:
The mail notification applet enters a 100% cpu usage state when it can't connect. I have a realtek 8169 based card, which oopses the kernel upon boot (I punched in the bug but it seems that nobody is fixing it). Since the network card doesn't work properly, there is no network connectivity available and for some reason mail notification enters this weird state.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start gnome (faulty r8169 driver responsible for the network)
2. mail notification (which is autostarting with GNOME) has 100% CPU usage for some reason
The applet displays an error icon and keeps trying to connect
It looks like the old standing upstream bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/mail-notification/+bug/182923
If not, please, reopen.
