Recently I had Evo freeze on me quite often - until I removed an LDAP

happened to be connected through a DAVMail connector to our enterprise
exchange GAL - some 40000 addresses - so where the network problems were
I don't know, but looking at straces and debug logs it doesn't look like
it was a problem with Evo directly, but more a problem with Evo not
recovering gracefully from data flow problems elsewhere.

Yeah.  This one is an excellent example of both a bug that has been
around for literally years, reported by lots of people and a bug with
in-effective network failure handling.
