Hello, sometime (approximately one time on three) I am not able to send my mail.

Additional info:
* 3.12.4

Steps to reproduce:
* create a new mail
* clic on "send"
expected :
* the mail is sent
what I get :
* the window is grayed with "mail sending" ("Envoi du message" in french).

Sometime, even if the window is grayed the mail seams to have been deliveredā€¦

steps to unlock evolution :
* evolution --force-shutdown
* restart evolution
* rewrite the mail
* clic "send"
* hopeā€¦
This task depends upon

It seams Archlinux is not the only distro impacted :

This is known upstream, already fixed in git:

I'll prepare a git snapshot from evolution-data-server 3.12 branch. It's unlikely we'll see a 3.12.5 release soon.

Please try evolution 3.12.4-2 and evolution-data-server 3.12.4-3. The patch I added in eds -2 wasn't applied in the PKGBUILD, so that package was nothing more than a recompile.

I am currently in holiday and will not be able to test the new package before 18/08/2014. I think you could set the bug as "fixed". I will reopen it in case I encounter the bug when I go back to work.
Thanks a lot :)
