Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

I have the latest version of evolution, on xubuntu 7.04.
It is a couple of day that, when i try to compose a mail, my pc freeze (block) and i have to reboot it, there is no way to continue.
This thing happens only when I compose mails, by reply!
Is there anyone with the same problem?

I have the same problem, replying to mails in my imap box will cause the computer to stop responding for a few seconds, afterwards no crashes, evolution continues just fine. I get this several times during e-mail composition and I only experience this in evolution. I haven't noticed increases in memory, disk or cpu usage.

yeah, me too..only happens in evolution. is not a terrible thing, but sometimes this thing is a little bit stressful. do you think so MHB?
It's strange that there isn't anyone more with this problem..

ah, btw i solve that using gutsy now!

I checked whether the blocks also occur in other apps. It doesn't. The evolution block seems not to be isolated to imap, but also occurs with pop boxes. It is some kind of usability issue, because using evolution is something people will be doing quite a lot ;)
I updated the gutsy beta, but that did not solve the problem. Could it be something with my ubuntu being upgraded from feisty?
I'd be happy to provide some more information.

Do you have always this problem MHB? Personally my upgrade to Gutsy solve the problem... let me know! bye and best wishes!
