Description Per Pomsel 2012-04-24 08:12:07 UTC
Gamin with courier-imap isn't working with dev-libs/glib-2.32.1 .The process /usr/libexec/gam_server "hangs" after some time (minutes/hours).So login to courier-imap succeeds, but I can't see any mails.
Killing the process /usr/libexec/gam_server spawns a new gam_server-process and everything works fine (until it hangs again after minutes/hours).
This issue exists on x86 and x86_64.
The Problem doesn't occur with dev-libs/glib-2.30.3 (x86 and x86_64). Of course I rebuilt app-admin/gam-server, app-admin/gamin and dev-libs/libgamin after emerging dev-libs/glib-2.32.1.
I'm not sure if
are related to the problem.
