Description of problem:
When the attached email is opened, mail component of evolution crashes with
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
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.

Email that can crash Evolution
Does this still crash with the final release?
Yes, it sure does. Package is evolution-1.0.8-10 on RH8.0 final.
Fixed with gnome-vfs-1.0.5-12 in rawhide
