mail-notification-5.4 GUI crashes after few seconds

Bug #268479 reported by Maciek Józiewicz on 2008-09-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Mail Notification

Bug Description

There is no icon on the tray - I think there should be (I haven't used it
before). When I run 'mail-notification -p' or '-o' it crashes after a few
seconds (not a constant time). Until then the GUI is totally responsive.

Almost always there's this warning (the hex number differs):
Xlib: unexpected async reply (sequence 0x48d)!

And sometimes also this:
Xlib: sequence lost (0x10209 > 0x217) in reply type 0xa1!

There is no SEGFAULT. Just those warnings in the terminal.

I'm using gentoo amd64. I'm not sure what info to attach so please ask if something more would help.

I have the same problem.
I think you also have a gmail account, because I noticed that the gmail plug-in is cause of this crashes.
The temporary solution is to check mails from gmail via pop plug-in.

To do it you have to delete your old configuration (I did it by this: "find ~ -name mail-notification -exec rm -r {} \;" and deleting this passwd form seahorse, the second action is optional) and add your new account via pop.

I hope some developers repair this, because checking gmail via pop sucks.

I'm waiting for the normal gmail checking. For the time being I guess I'll just log in once a day to check the mail manually...

Is anyone going to ever at least confirm that this problem is on the list?

Over 4 months passed and it still is "new" and "undecided". Damn is anyone even maintaining this software anymore?!!!

hi maciek,

there has not been a code update since may 2008, but its still very usable. Can you still reproduce the bug after such a long time?

Changed in mail-notification:
status: New → Incomplete
