Description An. N 2007-02-28 09:42:42 UTC
Description of problem: After changing and saving the options for a MS Exchange account handled by connector, evolution requires a restart. After doing so, a password dialog box for the account appears, but the interface is frozen (both dialog and evolution). The only way to get evolution back up is to manually remove the account using gconf-editor. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.8.3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Edit->Preferences->Mail Accounts 2. Select the exchange account from the list 3. Edit... 4. Change a setting (i.e. ldap address) 5. Click OK 6. Exit Evolution 7. Start Evolution again Actual results: Evolution's UI freezes almost immediately after startup (~1 second) Expected results: Evolution is up and running Additional info: None

Is this problem still present in Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?
Comment 2 An. N 2007-10-03 15:20:21 UTC
Unfortunately I'm unable to test on FC8t2 or later. The described problem has happened to me on FC7 x86_64 once, though.

When you got such freeze, can you attach gdb to evolution process and do "thread apply all bt" to see where it froze? it will be better when you've installed debug info packages for evolution, evolution-data-server, evolution-exchange and gtkhtml3. Please attach here that stack trace. Thanks in advance.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

I've filed this bug 10 months ago, and have stopped using evolution since. If I encounter this bug in the future, I will file the bug again with a reference to this one.
Comment 6 Matthew Barnes 2008-01-17 17:20:10 UTC
Closing this as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. I haven't seen the specific freeze mentioned here, but Evolution does seem to get cranky when users mess with Exchange options. Bugs like this are filed upstream, and the developers are will aware of the instability surronding Exchange settings so this issue will not be forgotten.
