Summary: Mail view reflows dozens of times on some mails
Product: openSUSE 11.0
Version: Alpha 3
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Evolution
AssignedTo: bnc-team-evolution@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: hpj@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: lakhil@xxxxxxxxxx
Found By: ---

When I view certain mails (the ones I've tried with are plain text), the mail
view reflows and reflows, flickering between blank and showing part of the
mail, for up to a minute. It uses up 100% CPU during this time.

I don't remember this happening with the Evolution that came with openSUSE 10.3
(without updates), but it happens with the one in 11.0.

One user also reported that he was not able to get Evolution to stop reflowing
some of his mails, and had to kill the process.

This seems to be a particularly big problem with GNOME SVN mails. I don't know
why, but maybe it has something to do with them having many long words/paths
and long lines.
