Package: evolution-data-server
Followup-For: Bug #755981

Dear Maintainer,

I am experienceing the same issue, but oddly enough, it happens on one of my computers
but not on another although I thought they are configured very similarly.  Not sure why.

1.  When this happens, almost all the network activity consists of bombarding the
DNS server with requests (checked with iftop -P)
2.  Disabling ipv6 (or even just the global ipv6 address) makes the problem disappear.

Hope this helps.
