Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Running evolution from a terminal after a while gives:

creating
fff
fff
fff
fff

...and continues to spew 'fff' for every time notification-daemon
crashes and tries to respawn. Evolutions GUI is hung while this
is going on. The notification-daemon respawn is seen with top,
giving the process a new PID all the time.

I'm seeing it too.

I did an upgrade from fiesty to gutsy.

In truth my system nor evolution hangs. I have a very high system load and evolution is extreamly (80286 like) slow.
top generally incorrectly reports some other process like firefox-bin for example as the cpu hog.

Has there been any solution for this found? I'm seeing the fff's and another error message in evolution under Arch linux and was wondering if the ubuntu community had found a solution.

I'm on version 2.12.1

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Thanks in advance.

I think it is fixed because I haven't had the problem for ages. I seem to remember reading in the Arch Linux bugs list that this module had been rewritten so that would explain it.
