Description Josh Boyer 2007-03-23 13:35:59 UTC
Description of problem:

Evolution crashes whenever accessing Sent folder.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start evo
2.  Click on Sent folder
3.  Marvel at the spectacular way evo crashes
4   Try and restart and it's crashes immediately.  Likely because it's still on
the Sent folder
Actual results:

Crash with SIGSEGV

Expected results:

Well... I don't really _expect_ evo to not crash.  But it would be nice :)

Comment 1 Josh Boyer 2007-03-23 14:15:46 UTC
Seems removing .evolution/mail/config/* has fixed the instant crash on restart
problem, likely only because it moved the current view off my Sent folder.

I should point out that the Sent folder is on an IMAP server, not the local one.

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-03-23 21:26:22 UTC
Now that you've removed .evolution/mail/config/*, does clicking on your IMAP
Sent folder still crash the program?

Comment 4 Josh Boyer 2007-04-04 20:19:57 UTC
I removed .evolution/mail/views/current_view-imap:<stuff here>_Sent.xml and
.evolution/mail/views/custom_view-imap:<stuff here>_Sent.xml and can now access
the Sent folder with it crashing.  Must have been something it didn't like about
whatever email it was stuck on before?

Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-04 21:12:22 UTC
If you can find a way to post the offending email (or send it to me privately)
that would be very useful to help track down the source of the crash.

I've started going through each email individually.  There are 981 of them, so
bear with me.  So far, no crash.  If I recreate it, I'll send it your way.

I have a feeling the problem will have magically vanished.

Comment 7 Josh Boyer 2007-04-05 15:10:05 UTC
Went through them all with no crash.  I'll stick this bug in NEEDINFO for a
while to see if a recreate does eventually happen.  If not, it can likely be
closed as WORKSFORME or something.

Comment 8 Josh Boyer 2007-04-13 13:39:12 UTC
Ok, did some more digging and got a recreate.  It seems that sorting by the "To"
field (i.e. by clicking the "To" label) in my Sent folder will immediately crash
Evo and the problem persists until I remove the 
.evolution/mail/views/{current,custom}_view... files.
