Description Jan Röhrich 2004-02-16 11:07:34 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040115 Epiphany/1.0.7

Description of problem:
My evolution crashes right after trying to answer a mail. I newly
installed Fedora Core 2 Test 1, no update, on a plain home directory
and added 2 IMAP mailaccounts, one which uses SSL in both directions.

If I try to start evolution from the console, it produces the
following output right before crashing:

asked to activate component_id
(evolution:2603): EBook-CRITICAL **: file eab-book-util.c: line 85
(eab_name_and_email_query): assertion `book && E_IS_BOOK (book)' failed
(gnome_segv2:2623): GLib-CRITICAL **: file gstrfuncs.c: line 2129
(g_strsplit): assertion `string != NULL' failed
(gnome_segv2:2623): GLib-CRITICAL **: file gstrfuncs.c: line 2241
(g_strjoinv): assertion `str_array != NULL' failed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start evolution
2. try to answer a mail
3. see it crashing

Actual Results:  it crashes

Expected Results:  I want to see some kind of editor for answering
mail :-)

After looking around in em-utils.c, I found this might be a
translation bug. 
In em-utils.c, there's a format string like this: "%a, %Y-%m-%d at
%H:%M %%+05d, %%s wrote:"
The german translation swaps the %%s and %%+05d

The failed eab_utils assertion seems unrelated to this, but also
doesn't seem to do any ill. 

Fixing the german translation fixed the bug for me.

Fixed in upstream CVS; latest Rawhide version has the fix.
