Censored Bug Buddy report from evolution-exchange crash

Looks like libsoup is choking on a URI it doesn't like and Evolution is not
checking for error. This appears to have been fixed in Evolution 2.21 so I can
backport the fix.

James, I built an updated evolution-data-server package with a patch based on
your Bug Buddy report, but I haven't been able to reproduce the crash here so
the patch is untested. Would you mind testing the package before I push it to
Updated package is here:

Thanks, it no longer crashes.

Cool, I'll push it out to Fedora Updates then.
I'm still trying to reproduce this on our internal Exchange servers here but the
Authenticate step is working fine here. I suspect it's related to your Outlook
Web Access configuration. Do you know anything about it, or whether it's some
kind of non-standard configuration?

Seems RHEL is not appropriate for desktop environment, I am using debian and ubuntu at home, and no complains at all.
Matthew, I applied the patch for that bug from upstream to the source RPM and built it, but it continues to crash for me. Does that patch fix it for you?

David, as far as I can tell it fixes the issue. Are you sure you are running proper evolution-data-server binary?
