Description David Juran 2005-11-14 06:33:17 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050921 Red Hat/1.0.7-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When trying to reply to a specific message, evolution will crash. This is identical to the bugs http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315547 and http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=300679 and I can verify that they are fixed in evolution-2.4.1-7 in rawhide.
However I do believe this fix should be back ported to RHEL4, since AFAIK, there is no workaround for it and it prevents a user from replying to specific emails.

I'm also attaching a back trace

Oh, and the work around is of course to delete the offending character from the
subject line the first thing you do when replying to the email...
