Re: [Evolution] Message composition freezes regulary

it might not even be the autosave (I can't imagine autosave even being

have you tried uninstalling gnome-spell? does that make a difference?

If others can confirm that this behavior is to be expected, please let

telling anyone to switch from Outlook on Windows to Evolution on Linux

As I said in my original post (perhaps that has gotten lost), this was
not a problem in the Evolution that came with Mandrake 9.1, so if anyone
has a solution, please let me know (other than re-installing the old
Mandrake)!  I am also open to any work-around, and if someone thinks it
is just my installation that is broken and knows how to fix it, that
would be welcome information too!

(It's done it twice just typing these sentences!)  Even typing a single
character into the message window is enough to trigger this behavior.

Just a guess: The Composer is saving copies of the mails. It might be
this. You will love this feature, when Evolution crashes the first time
while you are writing a large mail. (Well, haven't had that happen
often, though. :)

FWIW: I do see this sometimes, too.
