Description Jason Cavett 2004-10-18 23:37:54 UTC
When I try to write a new e-mail while connected to the Microsoft Exchange server, Evolution crashes when I start typing an e-mail address into the e-mail address box.  A list "sort of" comes up (I'm assuming these are results from LDAP based on what I have typed) and then my entire system hangs.  I cannot use my mouse at all.  I am forced to use my keyboard to call kill on every Evolution process.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install evolution-1.4.6 and ximian-connector- and their dependencies
2. Start Evolution
3. Open up a new e-mail
4. Start typing an e-mail address in the box.

Actual Results:  
Evolution (and it seems like anything "behind" Evolution in the window) freezes.

Expected Results:  
Returned the list of possibly matches for names and kept narrowing down the list
as I typed (and not crashed).

I'm not sure how to get a stack trace.

The one thing that I did notice is that this bug did not turn up until I started
using gnupg-1.2.6.  However, even if I turn it off, I am still having the same

Okay, after a good deal of additional testing, it seems that Evolution does not crash if I stop using the GnuPG key altogether.  However, I never had this problem before until I started using the ximian-connector.

Hope that helps.

I know they're rewriting the IMAP code for the next major release. Is this specific to gpg and imap? Does evo 2.0.3 work for you?
Comment 3 Mike Gardiner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-12 19:12:23 UTC
Or even evo 2.2?
Comment 4 Jason Cavett 2005-03-12 19:42:25 UTC
Sorry for the length in reply.  I have since discontinued using Evolution as my e-mail client.  I'm going to close this bug unless someone else wants to reopen it.
