Description of problem:
evolution hangs whenever I try to read or preview large e-mails.  The e-mails
that are doing this all have a large html attachment.  I didn't notice until I
upgraded the kernal recently, but I also didn't recieve e-mails with such large
html attachments until recently either. I have  the following kernels reported
by rpm: kernel-2.4.20-8 kernel-2.4.20-9 kernel-2.4.20-13.9 kernel-2.4.20-18.9 .

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set preview on (may not be important)
2. select large e-mail (which also has large html attachment)
3. scroll down
4. open large e-mail (which also has large html attachment)
5. scroll down to the bottom

Actual Results:  evolution hangs up for a short time, refusing to respond, and
also seems to make everything else run very sluggish.  If you then scroll down,
you get the same behavior.  If you open the e-mail, you get sluggish
performance, but everything else is just a little slow.  If you then scroll
down, it scrolls ok, but the e-mail (which only contains an html attachement) is
cut off after a certain point, like it ran out of room to display it or something.

Expected Results:  evolution not to hang up and not make everything else
sluggish when large e-mails (which also have large html attachments) are
previewed and to not do the same when they are then scrolled.  For e-mails to
open without making evolution sluggish and to display all of the html attachment
when scrolled to the bottom.

Additional info:

I can forward one of the large e-mails that causes this problem if that will help.

Evolution 1.4.x is better with this sort of thing.
