i just reported a bug on evolution
( that,
on  reflection, i think might actually be a network-manager bug.  The
symptom in evolution is a hang while pinging imap server, which occurs
on laptop wakeup.  thinking about it, probably the problem isthat
network-manager isn't reporting the online status accurately, or there's
a reace condition between evolution's pinging and network-manager's
reporting.  (though even so it seems to me that the ping process
shouldn't cause evolution to hang the way it does!).  Anyway, i'm
wondering if i can somehow monitor network-manager to see if it's
reporting its offline status in the way that evolutin expects it to.
Thanks for the help!
