Re: [Evolution] memory leak

Evolution often sucks up all my memory - 1 GB of RAM and another 1 GB of swap space when I delete some document element that appeared to be inside nested tables. It always happen during message composition, especially when editing and replying to a previous message.

Recent weeks, it has crashed randomly on me often, without any identifiable cause.

I know this information is not very useful, but that is all I have at this point. I'll update with more information if I manage to spend time on it and find out the problems.

Sorry i have aborted the test. If someone wanna help, just run evolution
over valgrind until it begins to eat all the memory of the computer.
Then, close normally evo and make available to the developers the
valgrind report. It is important to have a lot of mails (i have 500+)
and open them (specially if have large attachments).
