Description louisgtwo 2002-08-25 18:19:57 EDT
I have a backtrace but I don't think is very useful.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-29 01:01:34 EDT
The backtrace is completely non-useful.... I've added contacts here, so exactly
what did you do to reproduce?
Comment 2 louisgtwo 2002-08-29 21:26:43 EDT
This is one of those hit or miss bugs. I usually hit it while modifing some
addresses of contacts I already have. Is their a debug option I can run evo under?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-29 23:02:13 EDT
Unfortunately not for the addressbook
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-09 21:50:26 EST
Closing due to lack of reproducability.  If you have a way to reproduce or a
backtrace with information, feel free to reopen this bug.
Comment 5 Kanwar Sandhu 2003-07-02 14:55:48 EDT
Evolution seg faults after about a minute after I open a contact and try editing
it.  Evolution itself keep running, but the contacts become unavailable.  The
only way to get them back is to shut down Evolution and restart it, which is
futile because as soon as I try editing a contact, the contact editor seg faults
again!  This has been occurring on a regular basis since I started to use
Evolution in RH 8.0 (currently I'm running RH 9).

Occasionally I can edit a contact without experiencing a seg fault, but that's
few and far between.

I don't how to do a backtrace, so if that's what you're looking for, I'll need
instructions on how to do it.
