i don't think this valgrind log shows my problem. (the memory leak is too small) ^^
I will provide another log before Sunday with a longer use time.

may you please install the evolution-dbgsym, libgtk2 dbgsym and libglib2 dbgsym packages and get a new one? the one you submitted is missing a few symbols, thanks in advance.

it is too slow to do this on my laptop, so i couldnt run it in the last days. i need it to get things done and no things to slow me down. i run another log now. evolution still grays out/freezes more often after some runtime and exhausts too much memory.

I'm getting crazy memory leaks from evolution when I just browse my folders. Goes past 1GB of RAM easy within minutes.

Ubuntu 10.10 maveric meerkat updated to latest from update manager.

Evolution 2.30.3

I have tried to create a Valgrind log. Please advise if it is appropriate.

I think Bug #654429 is more relevant. And their Valgring logs seem much bigger than mine so I'm guessing mine didn't come out right. Sorry for waking the zombies.
