Hi evolution hackers,

I built evolution from the evolution-0-10-branch of 'Fri Apr 27 00:00:01 PDT 2001'
on Solaris 8. It built out of the box. (-:

It came up but the mail component was not started. )-:
When trying to run evolution-mail first and then evolution in a separate window
it hangs after cycling through the splash screen.
Running evolution-mail in gdb we've found that it was trying to read the netscape
preferences in an infinite loop and failed to detect the end of the file.

After applying this fix:

I'll let iain deal with this one.
Even after applying the above patch, evolution would not start the evolution-mail
component.  It works if I start the mail component in a separate window before
running evolution.  It does this in both my Linux and Solaris builds.

I have exactly the same behaviour on the Sun machines here at work.  My
suspicion (although I have little proof) is that this is an oaf problem,
specifically a race condition related to the fact that multiple oafd's
are started on Solaris.  I'm waiting to see what mjs comes up with in
this regard.
