Opening calendar applet on gnome-panel in Ubuntu 10.10 is slow
Binary package hint: gnome-panel
Clicking on the Clock applet on gnome-panel takes a few seconds to display the calendar. This occurs with Google Calendar enabled in Evolution and Evolution in "online" mode. With Evolution in "off-line" mode, the applet opens quickly.
In System Monitor, I can see the Network utilization spike each time I click on the Clock applet. Referencing Bug #87796, other users have suggested that the clock applet is retrieving information from Google each time it is opened.
This behavior is exhibited in Ubuntu 10.10 (x64).
