Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 602735
e-utils warning about illegal pop-up window call
Last modified: 2010-06-14 12:42:14 EDT
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):
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'
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  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.
That would be Bug #602728.

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