Description Nicolas Mailhot 2005-12-04 14:22:40 UTC
Description of problem:

Starting with evolution-2.4.1-8 non-ascii imap folders are displayed in the tree
view with non-interpreted UTF-8 names ( for example é instead of é)

Of course when you click on the forlder evo can't find it on the imap server

It worked fine before. It's still working fine with the same imap server
accessed by other imap clients

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Thanks for this bug report.

What was the last version of evolution that this worked with for you?
Any idea which version of evolution-data-server this was working/not working with?

Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-12-05 21:42:32 UTC
I only noticed it with yesterday's rawhide sync
Now because of the dbus update, lots of stuff got stuck for several days so it
was a big one.

I'm pretty sure evolution-2.4.1-7 was okay, today's evo is evolution-2.4.2-2,
not sure of the intermediate versions

Problem is easy to test - just use another imap client (thunderbird...) to
create a folder with non-ascii (accented latin, euro, cyrillic, whatever)
letters on the server, then ask evo to show folders it can subscribe to

Created attachment 121873 [details]
installed package changes

Packages before and after the problem.

I'm being conservative - I had a few minor yum syncs that weren't caught in the
logs, for example evo is now at 2.4.2-2 but I logged the problem with evo

I'm fairly sure the first state was sane though

Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-12-05 21:50:15 UTC
Also don't know if it's related but I can freeze gnome fairly easily just by
doing stuff in evo now.

Non-gnome apps are fine (firefox, thunderbird) gnome apps (panel included) stop
responding, I need to go to the console and kill gnome-session to recover it

Comment 5 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-12-12 20:35:04 UTC
Still there with :

I know this bug seems harmless - just use ascii folder names you'll tell me

However many default folders ("Sent" for example) have problem names in other
languages, so if this is not fixed before the next FC5 test release it's going
to hit an awful number of users.

Comment 7 Dave Malcolm 2005-12-21 21:17:47 UTC
Looks like a duplicate of this upstream bug:

Looks like this is fixed in upstream evolution-data-server CVS, so the fix
should make it into 1.5.4

Comment 8 Dave Malcolm 2006-01-05 20:00:24 UTC
Should be fixed now in rawhide.  Please can you test this and verify that it's

Comment 9 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-01-05 20:35:46 UTC
I can confirm the fix
Thank you very much
