Description Jonathan Kamens 2009-07-06 15:11:25 EDT
As described below, evolution with MAPI no longer crashing on startup, but now sucking up huge amounts of memory and CPU, eventually running out of memory and crashing.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #505661 +++

Startup crash gone.  Now other issues.  Got it to crash twice after setting up a MAPI account.  Unfortunately, can't replicate that crash with debuginfo packages installed.  However, now evolution is consuming a huge amount of RAM (1.5GB resident, >3GB total virtual size) and sucking a huge amount of CPU.  I suspect that the previous two crashes were out-of-memory issues, since I just got this:

Glib-ERROR **: gmim.c:175:failed to allocate 65536 bytes

I'm pretty sure evolution shouldn't need >3GB of RAM just to read my email.  Something is definitely still wrong here.
