Hi guys,

        I just got an, oh - several second blocking of the UI of Evolution
inside:

Thread 1 (Thread 0xb5c1a740 (LWP 775)):
#0  0xffffe424 in __kernel_vsyscall ()

        This of course is down to the geniuses who decided that we need an
'fsync' in glib's g_file_set_contents (we don't).

        Does anyone object if instead of g_file_set_contents we just use fopen,
fwrite, fclose ? any API method that does fsync is just a disaster-area
for latency on a loaded ext3 system; and it is -totally- un-necessary to
have some heavy-lifting transactional guarentees for an utter
corner-case, for a non-critical file anyway :-)

        Thanks,

                Michael.
