Description Máirín Duffy 2010-05-25 21:00:26 UTC
Description of problem:

A little bit about my setup - I have 4 imap accounts in evolution. One is my work mail account, one is my fedora project mail account, one is my personal mail account, another is my junk mail account.

I got an email from someone and needed to find it later. I didn't remember what email address the person sent the email to. So I used the searchbox in the upper right of evolution, I searched for the person's name, and used the rightmost dropdown to select 'in all accounts'. 

Almost every time I've tried this since installing RHEL 6, it's crashed evolution silently.

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

How reproducible:
Very. It doesn't happen every time, but for me it happens about 9 times out of 10 as I try to reproduce right now. Sometimes it takes a while to crash - the application goes all 'grey' and then maybe 30 seconds later it's gone from the task bar.

Steps to Reproduce:

See above

Thanks for a bug report. Could you install debug info packages for evolution and evolution-data-server and run evolution from console under gdb like this:
  $ gdb evolution --ex r --ex "t a a bt"
and then try to reproduce the crash and place the result of the above command here, please? It should show a backtrace for all threads in the time of the crash. Use 'q' to quit the gdb. Thanks in advance.

This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

Hi, I can't run the gdb command with debuginfo packages because I've since upgraded to Fedora 14. :( I'm very sorry I didn't even see your needinfo request until now :(

Comment 8 RHEL Program Management 2011-04-13 15:34:51 UTC
