Re: [Evolution] Evolution closes when double clicking to open an email

Please don't top post.
(And please don't CC me on replies to the list, it means I get a non-
list version of the mail which makes things more difficult - just reply
to the list only.)

RE advise to use gsettings reset.
Did that and the problem remains.
Used the gsetting get commands, and they returned window width=910 and height=717.

Is it the same error message?

Because the fact remains that this:

On Sun, 2019-06-30 at 16:42 -0600, lcstruik--- via evolution-list
(evolution:7107): Gdk-WARNING **: 15:37:58.410: Native Windows wider
or taller than 32767 pixels are not supported

Is your problem.  Evolution is trying to create a very, very wide/tall
window resulting in this:

(evolution:7107): Gdk-ERROR **: 15:37:58.441: The program 'evolution' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.

error from the Xserver.

Since that didn't solve your problem have you tried running Evolution
under the debugger as also detailed towards the end of this message:

It seems that somehow one of your default evolution shell settings has
gotten so large that it can't be used.

You will need to install the debug packages (by whatever method is
necessary for your distro) in order to get a meaningful backtrace.

Out of interest, when you click on a mail, does it open in a new window
or in a pane in the main evolution? If it's a new window, try turning
on the viewing pane (Ctrl-M).

If it only occurs when Evolution is trying to open a new window then it
is probably not the shell window width/height that's the issue. I
presume there are other gsettings for the mail pane, but I don't know
what they are called.
