Description Matthew Saltzman 2010-06-10 15:26:52 UTC
Description of problem:

I crashed evo by sending a message.  The evo window vanished.  Issued 'evolution --force-shutdown' to clean up before restarting.  The message had apparently been placed in the outbox but not sent yet, as the pop-up displayed asking for confirmation: "You have unsent messages, do you wish to quit anyway?"
On the console, I got the following warning.

(evolution:4835): e-utils-WARNING **: Something called e_alert_dialog_constructed() with a NULL parent window.  This is no longer legal, please fix it.

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

How reproducible:
Always (in the sense that when I get the crash while sending, the pop-up and warning show up reliably).  Intermittently (in the sense that the crash is intermittent.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send a message.
2. Crash (maybe).  Might only happen sending from Exchange--that's what I was doing.
3. Issue evolution --force-shutdown'
Actual results:
As above.

Expected results:
No warning.

Thanks for a bug report. I guess the warning is sort of bogus here, because you shouldn't be asked for "quitting evolution" when issuing --force-shutdown, also because the dialog is using the main window, which apparently doesn't exists. I would use an upstream bug [1] for the issue.

Do you have a crasher bug filled too, please? And if so, could you give me its bug number, to check the trace where the crash happened? Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I'm closing this bug report due to the upstream equivalent. See the upstream bug for any further updates.
