Re: [Evolution] infinitive wait for network events

For many releases, including the latest in Fedora 18 

Please give version numbers for Evolution, not the distro you use - not
everyone uses the same distro so they don't know which versions you are
talking about.

I've noticing that evolution does not handle network delays properly.
It will spin in wait state indefinitely. Please see included
screenshot. I wonder how to diagnose and prevent infinitive waits. The
only way to end the process is to to brute force kill signals.

This has been talked about before on this list.  Yes, it is a known
issue, but I seem to remember that the solution requires some other work
to be done first.  My experience of the issue is that many of the
problems stem from looking up contacts on a remote service (so that Evo
can decide if it's going to try and display images from the network) -
it's not the LDAP code itself that's the problem, more the type of
traffic that LDAP generates.  So try enabling "Never load images from
the Internet" (you can always explicitly load them with Ctrl-I) to see
if it makes it any better.
