Description Mikhail 2012-03-30 02:46:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Evolution stoped to display new messages. In the preview always shows one and the same message, no matter what the message is selected. When trying to open a message is displayed instead of the empty message. When do you send to the composer-e see a message that would send. In this evolution process of the CPU is always 100% and still increasing% loading process xorg.

Reloading evolution and reboot computer not help!!!

Comment 1 Milan Crha 2012-04-02 03:08:40 EDT
Thanks for a bug report. This sounds just like an upstream bug [1], and the video shows it the same, the scrollbar on the left of the preview panel seems to be almost unnecessary. Based on the upstream bug, the GtkHTML widget (the one which shows actual email body) fights whether to show the vertical scroll bar or not, and it keeps deciding the opposite each few milliseconds. Changing preview's height by dragging the separator between message list and preview itself, by more than 20-30 pixels will let GtkHTML stop fighting about scrollbar visibility and let evolution behave properly again.

Could you try that and report back whether it helped you, please?

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 20:12:53 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-31 23:41:04 EDT
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
