Description Milan Crha 2017-10-05 17:02:14 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1437669 +++

Vlada has still some similar crashes, even with glib2 which has the changes included, the same as too many crashes related to this glib2 function had been reported for Fedora 26, most of them gathered under bug #1483205, which also contains a proposed patch, which is awaiting review.

Comment 2 Milan Crha 2017-10-09 08:23:09 UTC
I forgot to mention my steps:
a) log in to the GNOME Shell
b) start Evolution in the Mail view
c) wait until it has finished the initial mail update
d) stop Evolution
e) log out
f) repeat from step a)

Once the issue strikes, the ABRT will claim a new problem at step a) coming either from evolution-calendar-factory-subprocess or from evolution-addressbook-factory-subprocess. I've got crashes from both.

I had configured several calendars and also had set my On This Computer/Personal address book to be included in the Birthdays & Anniversaries calendar, which is included for reminders in Edit->Preferences->Calendar and Tasks->Reminders tab.

I found out that glib2 2.54.0 has a change from [1]. I forgot of it long time ago.

Comment 7 Kalev Lember 2018-03-15 10:07:54 UTC
Sorry Milan, I totally missed that bug back then! 

I think we can close this now as we have glib2-2.54.2-2.el7 in 7.5 which includes the upstream fix (

Comment 8 Milan Crha 2018-03-15 11:21:45 UTC
Right, that's the original bug #1437669, from which I made this clone. The thing is that there are still some automated tests failing in the on_connection_disconnected(), but there's a mess around it, because it's unsure (or I'm highly unsure) whether it's only on machines which didn't update to RHEL 7.5 yet, or also on machines with the proper glib2 installed.

Could you, QA folks, verify the content of the machines which claim the error (and fill/pair with old FAF reports), please?

Will reopen if we see this again, seems to be a bit stalled and rebase to 3.28 should solve it.
