Description Warren Togami 2003-03-13 23:47:03 EST

Description of problem:
Upstream report

The attached mbox message from amazon.com caused Evolution's mail component to
fail with this popup message:

The Evolution component that handles folders of type "mail" has
unexpectedly quit.  You will need to quit Evolution and restart in order to
access that data again.

After I quit Evolution, this message shows up in the terminal:

evolution-shell-WARNING **: Error changing interactive status of component
OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Mail_ShellComponent to FALSE --

I believe something in the attached mbox message is causing the HTML
renderer to crash.  When I view the message as source it does not crash the mail

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. View the attached mbox message.

Actual Results:
Crashes Evolution's mail component.

Expected Results:
Should work.

How often does this happen? 

Red Hat Linux 8.0.94 beta (phoebe3)

Retested with gtkhtml-1.1.9-0.9 from Errata.  Evolution mail component still
crashes when attempting to read the above attached message.
