Description of problem:
On a clean install of Rawhide on IA64, with no pre-existing user profile,
launching evolution will invoke the Evolution Setup Assistant and also bring
about the destruction of the free world^W^W^W^W^Wappearance of several error
dialogs courtesy of evolution-data-server.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into GNOME
2. Launch evolution
3. Swat down the error dialogs like flies
Actual results:
An error dialog notifying the user of the evolution-data-server crash pops up

Expected results:
The e-d-s process should not crash.

Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-03 17:38:06 EST
I've tried selecting deleting .server files corresponding to the
various Evolution components, and the problem seems to be purely
associated with the Calendar component.  

I've found some suspicious-looking warnings in the e-d-s calendar
code; hopefully fixing them will fix these crashes; am investigating...
Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-03 17:38:47 EST
("selectively deleting", I meant to say)
Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-03 19:54:38 EST
Looks like a GINT_TO_POINTER/GPOINTER_TO_INT problem in the "kinds"
hash tables in e_data_cal_factory.c ; I'm trying a patched version of
the package...
Comment 5 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-04 16:55:46 EST
It was stripping away the top 32 bits of the GType values, which is a
64-bit type - ultimately a pointer for the nonfundamental types.

OK, I've built a patched version as evolution-data-server-1.0.2-4 for
RHEL4; I've tested with it on an ia64 box and Evolution and the panel
clock's task list is now working; I can successfully view local and
web calendars, and edit the local ones.

I'll resolve this bug once the new package is in place.

(Looks like the code is already fixed in CVS HEAD upstream)
Comment 9 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-12 16:22:08 EST
Closing, since the eds package is now in place
