#499 closed bug (invalid)

Crash after recieving a mail.

Reported by: broadblues Owned by: tboeckel
Priority: high Milestone: YAM 2.9p1
Component: mail indexing Version: 2.9
Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: OS Platform:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Release Notes:



This crash appears to come in two parts which may or mau not be directly related. First a message about YAM rendering on the wrong process pops up on the Workbench, then a GR occurs with AddPath() being the last but one entry in the stack.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Run YAM on it's own screen
  2. Go to workbench screen and wait for mail to arrive.
  3. The Message about rendering on the wrong process occurs
  4. The Grim reaper occurs just after the above has auto cleared.

I've only seen the GR after one of the rendering error messages, and these don;t occur everytime a mail is downloaded.

Expected results

A new mail is downloaded and added to incoming.

Actual results

The new mail disappears, ignoring the GR requires a reboot and so the mail is lost. I'm not yet sure whther it's dleted at the server side.

I just looked into my incomming folder to see what mails were there after the last occurance of this crash.
I see the following two mails, which are idenetical in all but name.

Q7V4aQAD98Y=.001,R 3528 ----rw-d Today 18:11:53
Q7V3zQAAdJk=.001,N 3528 ----rw-d Today 18:09:17

Only the later email is included in the index, and this later email was the mail downloaded imediatly after reboot. So it seems the mail is not deleted from the server has been downloaded and saved correctly but not added to the index file.

I can confirm this crash, just got it myself this morning.
Yam tried to download a mail, but was stuck with the "Checking mail from..." message in it's main window.

The mail was never downloaded.
I had to reset because CPU useage went up to 100% and draw the system unuseable.

The crash happened in another YAM thread, though

Now i lost a mail aswell.

The already mentioned crash came up again which i resumed in GrimReaper.

On (automatic through filter) moving that mail to it's subdir another crash happened.
(Something to do with "TransferMail")

I'm not sure if the mail was downloaded already (and on my HDD), at least i cannot find it.
It was deleted from the server though.

Unfortunately the system was already unstable so it did not save that crashlog.

If i ever get another chance, i'll try to save the second crashlog
(If you need it that is? I was told that after resuming one crash, a followup can't be trusted due to the system already being messed up?)

Mail found.

Index of Incoming wasn't updated after the second crash.
A reboot and new start of YAM brought the mail back.

Another tiny bit of information, albeit unrelated.
The crash happened with the (already per mail) reported MUI_Redraw error up front.

Please switch to YAM 2.10-dev for the time being to avoid this bug.

comment:7 Changed 23 months ago by tboeckel

(In [7577]) * tcp/pop3.c, tcp/smtp.c: added some checks for correctly resolved incoming and sent folders. This refs #499.

comment:8 Changed 23 months ago by tboeckel

Please try to reproduce this issue with the next nightly build. If mails are not received at all then please provide a FOLDER debug log created with the debug version.
