Description Michael Eckhoff 2002-09-13 02:52:02 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020823

Description of problem:
When the attached email is opened, mail component of evolution crashes with

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Import attached email message into the inbox
2.Either browse over the email or double click to open
3.You may need to do this multiple times.  The most times I have had to open it
is 4, the least once.

Actual Results:  Evolution mail component crashes with a segfault.

Expected Results:  The email should open.

Additional info:

I have no clue what this message is - it came as spam mail.  So if you know the
language it's in, my apologies if it is offensive.

My system is (null) beta updated with latest packages from up2date.

I use evolution as my primary email package at home.  Generally have a few
hundred messages in the inbox at any one time.  I have not seen an email crash
it until now.  That is why I am reporting it as a bug.

I saved the message during one of the times it did not crash on the first click.
 I have tested to make sure that it still can crash evolution even after it has
been re-imported.  Be careful - if it becomes the first message in your inbox,
evolution may crash upon load.

Does this still crash with the final release?

Comment 3 Michael Eckhoff 2002-11-01 04:37:51 UTC
Yes, it sure does.  Package is evolution-1.0.8-10 on RH8.0 final.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-06 02:14:42 UTC
Fixed with gnome-vfs-1.0.5-12 in rawhide
