OK, sounds good.  But, as I understood you this morning, you were
convinced that the PPP problem did not exist.

I've dont plenty of testing with disconnecting, and it works fine.  It
takes a while and eventually times out.  If i reconnect the network, it
just keeps going again.

I thought your college has already established that's a linux kernel bug
Now seriously, what you describe might work, but there is a bug in the
code. Take a look at the signal handler(s) used by Orbit and Evolution,
then rfm about socket and socket options. BTW I checked only Orbit


Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing, what's the number
for the open bug on PPP disconnects causing an IMAP hang?


IMAP and POP are separate.

There might be some threading contention where a thread is 'busy'
waiting for a timeout, but it isn't hanging.

Why not?  It's clear that there's a bug in evolution and that it's not a
fundamental flaw with Linux.

Now, if the stop button bug and the PPP-disconnect-hang bug are
manifestations of the same problem, then I agree that it doesn't make
sense to file a new one -- that is, if there is a non-closed stop button
bug and if it is known that these are really the same problem.  

Are both these things true?

Yes, Ettore, you're right about the stop button not working -- and
there's at least one bug on it but it was closed as fixed even though it

Is the stop button problem also causing the PPP-disconnect-induced
hangs?  Or should I file a separate bug?  Anyway, you're right that this
isn't a problem with Linux: Mozilla on Linux handles PPP disconnects
just fine.

On reading your response, my first thought was, "Boy, linux must be
lame," because on Windows, nothing hangs when you lose your PPP -- not
outlook, not mozilla, not anything as far as I know.

wonderful about those win32 apis for finding out when the connection
goes down. Not available on linux.

Having the Stop button working properly in all cases in the mailer would
be a good starting point though.  ;-)

It is true that we have a bug there, and it can be fixed, and there is
no reason to blame Linux for it.
