Backtrace for ics import
Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-10 17:01:48 EDT
Is this specific to RHEL3 U5, or is it reproducable with earlier versions of
RHEL3 evolution?
Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-10 17:15:52 EDT
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
precise backtrace will be helpful.  Thanks)

"regenerate the backtrace" I meant to say

Debug bt

This did not seem to add much by way of info but here it is.
Comment 7 Edward Rousseau 2005-05-10 17:39:52 EDT
This behavior was not present in an earlier U5 build (re0309 - re0311 first beta).
Comment 8 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-10 23:25:48 EDT
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.

Comment 9 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-11 13:25:58 EDT
Successfully reproduced the crash on shalashaska with evolution-1.4.5-12.x86_64
Comment 10 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-11 13:55:54 EDT
Verified that it works on shalashaska with evolution-1.4.5-14.x86_64
