Last modified: 2012-07-09 02:56:42 EDT
Description of problem:
evolution freezes when changing font details (color/size/type..etc) or when adding an emoticon.
This occurs both in Gnome & KDE.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : evolution
Arch : i686
Version : 3.2.3
Release : 3.fc16
Fedora release 16 (Verne)
3.4.2-1.fc16.i686.PAE #1 SMP Thu Jun 14 20:53:38 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open evolution
2. compose a new email message in HTML
3. change font color/size, or add an emoticon
evolution compose window freezes and becomes unresponsive
font details should change and compose should continue successfully
Tried this both in GNOMe & KDE, same result, tried to find a bug fix here in redhat but couldn't.
can see the same issue reported as well in ubuntu:
Thanks for a bug report. KDE has its own issues of this kind with standard combo-boxes, unfortunately. Under Gnome, it's fixed under bug #829915, thus I'm marking this as a duplicate of it.
