Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 67557
kernel-2.4.18-5, nfs/kmail(imap)/other? wierdness...

First off, I apologize in advance for not being able to provide too many
concrete details. This seems to be a wierd one.
I'm TRYING to use kmail (version 3.0.1-1 built from rawhide sources), and it
had been working great, until I upgraded to kernel-2.4.18-5. Also, fyi, my
home directory is NFS mounted from a Redhat 6.2 server (kernel-2.2.19-6.2.16).
Anyway, after the kernel upgrade to 2.4.18-5 on the nfs client, most imap

The dnotify patch was a strict bugfix (use-after-free of the internal data)
FYI, haven't seen the problem in a *long* while... some
combination of my using kde-3.0.2 and/or kernel-2.4.18-7 (see #67199 and
#67461) probably fixed it.
With recent kernels, haven't seen the problem. Closing...
