Description David Woodhouse 2005-03-06 20:01:11 UTC
Evolution segfaulted when I selected a mailing list folder which I hadn't looked
in for a while. Now it segfaults repeatedly on startup.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2005-03-08 09:05:15 UTC
Removing the directory from ~/.evolution/mail/imap/... which
corresponds to the offending IMAP folder fixes this problem.

Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2005-03-09 15:46:34 UTC
I'm guessing this was a crash on building the Preview for an email. 
Any idea which message was causing the crash?

Comment 3 David Woodhouse 2005-03-11 02:08:58 UTC
It went away when I removed the offending folder's cache from my
~/.evolution directory. I have a tarball of the offending cache; will
investigate further when I get back next week.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2005-04-28 01:06:16 UTC
Does this still occur?

Comment 8 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-02 17:52:14 UTC
Is this problem still present in Fedora Core 6 or later?

Comment 9 David Woodhouse 2007-01-02 20:23:17 UTC
Haven't seen it recently.

Comment 10 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-02 20:43:03 UTC
Closing for now, then.  Feel free to re-open this if you encounter the same
problem in Fedora Core 6 or later.
