Evolution is one of the BUGGIEST pieces of code
ever written (including Windows). My solution to the
utter stupidity of a program that lets you tweak
unimportant things and NOT the important things, was
to rename the keyring thing physically on the disk
and then somewhere in /usr/share there’s some sort
of dbus registration thing that mentions it… I
removed it or commented it out.
Even still… there are times that Evolution puts
dbus into a tail spin (consumes LOTS of CPU).
Arghh!! I have to connect to an Exchange server
at work… and right now, Evolution is the only
game in town.
(Evolution is in a bad need for a complete
rewrite… not a mere fix)
Hope this helps… but I know it’s not very
specific. Most people loathe Evolution to the
point that I did not believe it was worth
taking the time to document what I did fully.

… frustrated… I decided to see what I could do to
end this ordeal.
Even if you Deny the use of the keyring manager, it
will get used if you have Auto Complete turned on
in your preferences… I don’t think there is a way
to disable it.
So… I Deny the key ring when prompted BUT do save
the password. Then I removed the keyring software
packages and took out the dbus entry from
Now evolution uses its own saved password settings
(without the keyring store) and as long as I never
turn on Auto Completion of addresses… dbus doesn’t
consume all my CPU, gnome-keyring-daemon doesn’t
consume all my CPU… in fact, I can for the first
time actually leave Evolution running for hours on
The gnome-keyring-daemon is broken or just bad
somehow with Evolution. Without it, dbus will go
nuts if you have Auto Complete turned on… so dbus
becomes evil then… with both, they both will take
up the majority of your CPU.
Anyway, I can now run Evolution, and I’m happy enough.
You can still to LDAP/AD searches by pressing the To:
button… just won’t have auto completion.
