Description James Antill 2002-06-24 23:31:37 EDT
Description of Problem:

 If you upgrade to the evolution-1.0.3-6 update and then create a new user and
get that user to configure evolution to read email. Then the settings will not
be saved when evolution shuts down, and the config-mail dialog will popup
everytime you start.
 Note that if you ls -ul ~/evolution/config then the Maildir files will not have
been read when you restarted.
 If you rpm -e evolution, and then rpm -Uvh evolution-1.0.3-4.i386.rpm ... then
when you configure the mail settings then next time you restart everything will
work as normal (and I presume upgrading to the errata will still work (as it did
before when I installed 7.3), but I haven't tried that yet). 

 Note that the ~/evolution/config.xmldb file had this in it when I downgraded
and configured...

    <entry name="maildir__home_jo_Maildir_#." type="boolean" value="0"/>

...and that not being there is presumably the problem (in fact the whole  
<section path="/Mail/Threads"> wasn't there when configuring on 1.0.3-6).

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

How Reproducible:
 It happened everytime I restarted evolution, I haven't created any new users
yet ... it'll be a week or so before I can even do that.

I haven't seen this here... can you still reproduce?
