Dear Linux folks,

using Debian Sid/unstable, clicking on a mail address in Iceweasel
(Firefox) a composer window is opened in Evolution 3.4.3-1. But then the
windows are only gray and hang and the only way to fix this is to kill
the process. I reported this issue to the GNOME Bugzilla as 685640 and
the developer Matthew Barnes pointed out the following [1].

        Radeon video driver thread looks stuck:
        Thread 5 (Thread 0x7f6656d4d700 (LWP 4375)):

                cs = 0x7f666b635c40

Any hints how to fix this are much appreciated. If it is indeed a Linux
issue, I will gladly create a new ticket in the
