Thanks for your report. I personally feel you should forward this upstream. We have notifications in place for people running out of disk space. Fixing every app to handle that side case case gracefully is very low priority.

I am getting this problem without the disk being near full on Hardy (evolution-data-server-2.22). It does not appear to have anything to do with evolution's config either. The problem still occurs after removing ~/.evolution.

@Russel, Pieter: if this is not a disk-full situation, then you are probably being hit by bug 151536. Please have a look at it.

This bug affects me in Lucid but my disk is not full. The / partition has 89% use (5 GB free) and /home has 44%... this screenshot i send it is been taken after 30 min of running the system and it was like this all the time. My fan laptop is getting faster and faster and CPU is getting hot. Please consider this not a very low bug since it affects the whole system performance and battery life.

I confirm Santiago's reporting, on Lucid evolution-data-center seems to take 100% CPU all the time.

Running lucid and I get 100% CPU usage as well. Have version installed. Seems to only happen when I go to contacts address book.

Same here, and I don't use Evolution as mail client. I don't understand why this process are running from start.

People, I think that instead of saying same here (thing that I used to do too) we should use the 'mark bug as affecting me'. That'll put some pressure on the tank.
