Backtrace for ics import
Is this specific to RHEL3 U5, or is it reproducable with earlier versions of
Also, please install debuginfo packages and resubmit the bug.
(The bug appears to be in C code generated using a Perl script, so having a more

This did not seem to add much by way of info but here it is.
This behavior was not present in an earlier U5 build (re0309 - re0311 first beta).
Appears to be bogus code in ical_property_string_to_enum; looking at the
disassembly, access to the "enum_map" variable looks broken.
Looks a lot like bug 157354; I currently believe this to be another symptom of
the same cause (contradictory linkage specified for that symbol); am doing a
test build of a fix.
Successfully reproduced the crash on shalashaska with evolution-1.4.5-12.x86_64
Verified that it works on shalashaska with evolution-1.4.5-14.x86_64
