Evolution IMAP stops working after a day
Last modified: 2009-03-18 14:00:28 EDT
Description of problem:
After evolution-2.24.5-1.fc10.i386 has been running for a day or so, my IMAP accounts stop functioning. I have two IMAP accounts configured, and after 24 hours of operation, the folders stop updating with new messages. Clicking on a message doesn't induce anything to appear in the message pane. No connection messages are displayed in the status bar. No errors appear. Nothing obviously crashes. It just gets too lazy to bother retrieving and displaying any messages. Switching between folders or accounts produces no changes. Still no messages are displayed. Hitting "get mail" has no effect. Closing evolution greys out the folder and message list panes, but the process doesn't actually quit. It just sits around like it's waiting for itself to do something. 'killall evolution' will close the window, and it'll work (for another day) after restart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10 & evolution-2.24.5-1.fc10.i386
