Thanks for a bug report. This should fix the issue (even I'm not able to reproduce it myself, somehow). I built a test package witht he fix included at:


Give it a try and let me know whether it worked. Thanks in advance. Please do not forget to logout and log in after installing it, to make sure that the new binaries will be loaded.

Comment 2 Siteshwar Vashisht 2014-11-05 10:53:08 UTC
I am able to reproduce this issue by following below steps :

1. Setup a vanilla RHEL 6.5 system.
2. Install evolution-exchange package.
3. Do 'yum update' and update to latest version of all the packages.
4. Start evolution in terminal and observe the error message printed in terminal.

This issue is not reproducible on vanilla RHEL 6.6 system however.

The problem seems to be somewhere else. Why updated machine has a problem, while vanila not is a question, but otherwise the reason might be that the external global variable is defined in a library against which the module doesn't link explicitely. This patch does exactly that.
