evolution freezes on some xml attachments

Eugene Kanter
Recently I noticed that I am unable to open messages with attached xml
files. UI completely freezes.
"Retrieving message" is displayed in status bar. Process "evolution"
does not respond to SIGINT.
Strace shows some threads are active, but not much activity overall,
mostly poll().
Watching for several minutes I noticed several read/write with xml
attachment fragments.
Overall CPU activity is negligent, ps shows zero CPU utilization by
evolution.
Eventually the UI came back to life, but every time I select the message
it freezes again.

Any ideas how to debug this anomaly?

Might be https://bugzilla.gnome.org/724909, fixed in 3.12.

Is there a plan to backport this to current Fedora?

3.12 is already available for the current Fedora:

This is not an official Fedora 20 repository.
A complete application freeze is a serious problem and IMHO should be
addressed officially.

I think that's something you need to ask on the Fedora lists not here.

It's as official as you're gonna get until Fedora 21.

As Matthew says, this should be addressed to a Fedora list (or the
Fedora Bugzilla). The Evo devels have no control over which versions the
various distros decide to support. Ubuntu seems to be chronically behind
for example.

        Hi,
I do not think a backport will be possible, the other parts of the code
changed significantly. There is a workaround, run this as root:
   $ rm /usr/lib64/evolution/3.10/modules/module-text-highlight.so
(correct path accordingly, for example 'lib' instead of 'lib64'). That
will get rid of the failing part and you'll get a proper behaviour
again.
        Bye,
        Milan
