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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reply to the attached email by typing a few lines at random
2. watch evolution crash
Created attachment 121017 [details]
replying to this email will make evolution crash
Created attachment 121018 [details]
backtrace from evolution
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...
