Bug#412616: Is kmail caching changes?



Package: kmail
Version: 4:3.5.5.dfsg.1-6
Severity: wishlist

My system has an old, very large monitor that will probably die soon.
otherwise I wouldn't have seen this.

Oh, I suspect it also has some bad RAM, which tickles another problem.

By all means, feel free to forward any conclusions you make to others.

Anyway, at one point today, I tried to print something I had been
working on.  On a fresh reboot, this hasn't happened (yet), but if
things have been running a while, printing will cause the system to
completely halt.  Not even trying to login via the network from another
machine works.  So, Murphy is doing his usual fine job, and locks
everything up on page 2 of an 8 page print job.

I cycle the power and get things going again.  I've got some filesystem
problems, since things actually crashed.  I'm running EXT3 on the
filesystems in question.

It seems like I've lost the last 2 hours of email I've received.
I was working on a file (in emacs), and I didn't lose anything in 
the crash.  So, losing email can't be attributed to the journal
losing things.  The only thing I can think of is that somehow
kmail caches things for a long time.  None of the messages I had seen in
that 2 hour or so period were in new/ or tmp/.  Kmail had promptly
worked there, but as far as writing them to cur/, it hadn't.
