Description JLapham 2003-07-03 14:18:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; pt-BR; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
When running evolution, we are seeing various problems, instabilities, freezes
and long startup/shutdown times.

Running from the shell shows the following messages:

evolution-shell-WARNING **: Cannot get /OfflineFolders/paths from ConfigDatabase
-- IDL:Bonobo/ConfigDatabase/NotFound:1.0
Waiting for component to die -- OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Mail_ShellComponent (1)
Waiting for component to die -- OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Calendar_ShellComponent (1)

And looking at the running processes shows this (after a few starts/stops of

kover@wkst20 > ps -Af | grep -i evol
kover     6254     1  0 10:35 ?        00:00:00 evolution-alarm-notify
root      6363     1  0 10:41 ?        00:00:00 evolution-alarm-notify

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start evolution
2.stop evolution

Actual Results:  error message shown above.  Evolution sometimes freezes,
sometimes takes a long time to respond.

Additional info:

this may be specific to a single machine, as other computers with RH9 on them
are not showing this problem.

A lot of this should be better in 1.4.x

Comment 2 JLapham 2003-08-07 11:37:19 UTC
"A lot of this should be better in 1.4.x"

...so you closed this bug?!  

Shouldn't you at least ask if 1.4.x solves the problem first?
