Description An. N 2008-12-12 18:34:03 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):

How reproducible:

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
Actual results:

Expected results:
The applet displays an error icon and keeps trying to connect
