Description Adam Jackson 2007-03-20 20:00:10 UTC
Description of problem:

Trying to send /proc/bus/usb/devices as an attachment eventually times out with
a rather hilarious error message:

Cannot append message to mbox file: /home/ajax/.evolution/mail/local/Outbox:
Connection timed out

However, copying the file aside and attaching the copy works just fine. 
/prov/bus/usb/devices is listed as 0 bytes long in ls, so it's probably just evo
getting stuck waiting for zero bytes forever.

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

evolution-2.9.92-1.fc7

Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2007-03-23 22:13:43 UTC
Likely a problem in Camel, so changing the component to Evolution-Data-Server.

My guess is it's one of the CamelStream subclasses; CamelStreamFs perhaps.

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2007-04-17 19:38:50 UTC
Wanna upstream this Matt?

Comment 3 Milan Crha 2007-05-24 10:05:15 UTC
I'm not sure what I could do with this. Based on my observations, at
evolution-data-server/camel/camel-file-utils.c is in function camel_read used
function select, which waits for max 4 minutes on response from device, and if
it will fail (timeout), then the result is an error message mentioned above.

I think we could rather move this upstream and discuss with them how to solve it
properly.

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-05-24 10:50:37 UTC
Milan, yes please move this upstream.

Comment 5 Milan Crha 2007-05-24 11:13:49 UTC
Moving this upstream where we will continue to track the problem.
