Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-09-20 15:29:22 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support

Comment 5 Milan Crha 2013-05-09 13:54:03 UTC
Thanks for a bug report. This is due to two threads accessing GConf in the same time, while GConf is not thread safe. Partial fix might be with a backport of [1], which initialized dbus_glib threading, thus is pretty much simple thing to do. If we go this way, then a clone for evolution would be also needed.
