How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Comment 1 Dave Malcolm 2004-10-19 20:40:58 EDT
(FWIW I couldn't reproduce the bug with evolution 2.0)
Comment 2 Rob Kearey 2004-10-19 20:50:29 EDT
I can reliably reproduce with 1.4.5, as is used by all of our sales
and admin here. evolution --offline seems to work around the problem,
but that's not how evo is launched by gnome.
Comment 3 Rob Kearey 2004-10-20 20:24:59 EDT
Starting evo in with no network with --offline, then selecting 'work
online' from the file menu also crashes evo.
Comment 9 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-10-03 10:32:00 EDT
