Changing component to 'evolution-data-server'.
See my analysis in the upstream bug report.

An ugly workaround for this follows:

1) Start Configuration Editor
2) Navigate to /apps/evolution/general/category_master_list
3) Right click on category_master_list, and select Edit Key
4) This is a very long XML string, and each category has a icon attribute that
   gives a path to the image file.  Look for evolution-data-server-1.x in each
   path.  The 'x' is probably older than what you're using now.

E-D-S needs to be able to keep these paths up-to-date without manual
intervention.  One approach may be to abstract the path to the icon file in the
GConf string and have E-D-S expand it at runtime.

For example, the GConf string


would be expanded at runtime to


for evolution-data-server 1.5/1.6, and to


for evolution-data-server 1.7/1.8.

Closing as UPSTREAM since I forwarded this upstream awhile ago.  I believe this
has been at least partially fixed in subsequent evolution-data-server releases,
but I will continue to track the remaining issues there.  Please refer to [1]
for further updates.
