Evolution freezing during spell check

dave boland
Evolution 3.22.1, Ubuntu 16.10 (Mate).

When a word is flagged as misspelled, and I put the mouse cursor over
the misspelling, sometimes the editing session freezes.  I can still
move the window about, and nothing else is affected, and after a few
seconds things return to normal.  I have not seen this problem before,
and would appreciate any insight.

Thanks,
Dave

        Hi,
you probably face
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=777086

Though there the UI freezes only when you also right-click above the
word, not when you just move mouse cursor above that word. Try to run
evolution from a terminal, then you might see some runtime warnings
there, similar as described in the above bug report.
        Bye,
        Milan

Hi Milan:

Ok, trying your test.

This is a mistake.


ok, I could not get it to freeze this time.....
However, I found something else out.
You recall that some users were complaining that the right click word replace was not working.
Well, it does work IF, you select the word with the mouse and press enter. If you select the word with the mouse and just click on it, it does nothing.

Still trying to get the spelling lockup to occur.

Cheers,
john
