Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 150750
.ics file brings Evolution to a swift end
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:06 EST
Description of problem:
Evolution crashes when I attempt to import an ICS file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Once, haven't reproduced again yet
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Evolution
2. Import, set to single file, leave file type as 'Detect'
3. Attempt to import the Bills.ics file
Evolution displays the contents of the ICS file in the calendar view.
This .ics file was generated by iCal. Not sure if that has anything to do with
the crash, but I thought it was worth mentioning how I generated this file.
FWIW I just now successfully imported the calendar on a machine running rawhide
(evo 2.2, e-d-s 1.2); was promted for file type; chose ics over vcf
Dave, On i386 this does not work either. There is no segfault but the text for
the calendar items does not show in the Day view but the days are bolded in the
numerical calendar pane.
Follow up ... above I was usng automatic and it defaulted to .ics. If I force a
.vcf Evolution crashes.

Backtrace of Evolution crash
I had to import the .ics file twice as .vcf. The first import errored but did
not crash evolution. The second import did. Also there is no crash if you set
the target of the import to a new calendar. Crashing happens only when tryng to
import the file into the existing default calendar.
Looks like a dup of bug 157352.
Is this fixed with the latest packages?
