everyone uses the same distro so they don't know which versions you are
talking about.

Even people using the same version of the same distro may be using
different versions of *applications*

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.

  netstat --verbose --program --numeric --tcp

That should show network connections.

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.

Wasn't load-images issues resolved in 3.8.x?  At least the issue
relating the proxy servers [I thought the webkit message component fixed
