Whenever I try to get mail from our IMAP server, a Sun SS20 running Solaris 2.5 and SIMS 2.0, Mozilla goes in to what appears to be an infinite loop. I've tried this on Solaris 7, Red hat 6.1, and NT 4. If you need any more information, let me know. I can try whatever oyu might need. dale
Hi. Thanks for reporting this. Here are some questions which would help us: 1. What build are you using? 2. Does it work correctly on Netscape 4.x? 3. What exactly happens when Mozilla goes into the "infinite loop"? Can you get out of it by hitting the STOP button? Or do you have to kill Mozilla? (add the answers to the bug, please) CC: jefft

Sounds bad. I think it wouldn't hurt to get an IMAP log. You can get a log by setting the following environment variables before you start Mozilla: setenv NSPR_LOG_FILE ~/tmp/imapio.txt setenv NSPR_LOG_MODULES IMAP:5 You can then attach the log file using the "Create a new attachment" link on the Bugzilla page. (Make sure no personal info is contained in the file). Do you see any error messages in the console?

I attached the imapio.txt as requested. The file grew to its present size rapidly and then stopped being written to as Mozilla hung. This is from my Solaris box, I do not have acces to Mozilla/Solaris at the moment but I could switch if it would help. The last few lines from the console, after this I ctrl-C to stop Mozilla: imap://dhouston@mailhost/INBOX In ChangeFolderByURI title string = [INBOX on biostats - Mozilla] got a request title string = [Mozilla] Document: Done (0.725 secs) WEBSHELL+ = 8 nsXULKeyListenerImpl::Init() WEBSHELL+ = 9 WEBSHELL+ = 10 commonDialogOnLoad title string = [Enter your password] WEBSHELL- = 9 Move window by 0,20 screen x -1screen y -1 WEBSHELL- = 8 WEBSHELL- = 7 /home/dhouston/mozilla/package rasch.bio.ri.ccf.org>
What version of mozilla you were running? The 3076[86e0510]: mailhost:A:CreateNewLineFromSocket: * LSUB () "/" mail/ looks troublesome, but I believe that I have fixed the hanging problem. Could you try the most recent build? Thanks,
The most recent build fixes the problem, at least on Linux. Thanks!! I will give the latest Solaris build a shot but if you do not hear from me it must be fixed. Once again, thanks, you guys rule.
Once you've made sure it works on Solaris, can you resolve the bug and mark it WORKSFORME? Thanks.
I downloaded the latest Solaris build (2-17 around 5 pm) and it is not running for me. When I truss mozilla-bin I see the following: lwp_sema_wait(0xFC5F1E78) (sleeping...) door_return(0x00000000, 0, 0x00000000, 0) (sleeping...) poll(0xFC611BE0, 1, 35000) = 0 poll(0x00164AC8, 3, -1) (sleeping...) signotifywait() (sleeping...) poll(0xFC611BE0, 1, 35000) (sleeping...) lwp_sema_wait(0xFC5F1E78) I tried the set shmsys:shminfo_shmseg = 10 trick in /etc/system and also the latest kernel (106541-09) and the latest libthread patch (106980-09) but to no avail. I'm running Solaris 7 on UltraSPARC and M13 worked on this machine. Do you want me to file this as a separate bug and then get back to the mail bug when the latest build works?
Yes, a separate bug would be good. You can also post in netscape.public.mozilla.builds
dhouston, have you had a chance to look at it with a Solaris build yet?
I still need a version of Mozilla that will run under Solaris 7. I try and download the nightly builds every day or so but so far they all choke as in bug 26035.
[richb - 4/23/00] We (Sun) have made a version of Mozilla-beta1 available in binary format (complete with gtk+ and glib) libraries from www.sunfreeware.com. Could you see if the bug has been fixed against this version?
Should this be closed WFM now?
any update dhouston?
Cool! Marking WFM.

super. Will mark verified per dhouston's comments. We're going to MailConnect 6 in a few weeks and will also test out the SIMS server.
