Description Pedro Silva 2008-06-27 11:34:14 EDT
Description of problem:

When creating a backup of settings and data using the evolution's File Menu
option and choosing my Desktop as the target dir, the process fails.

I run F9 in pt_PT (Portuguese), my desktop path is /home/pedro/Área de Trabalho/.

When the backup process fails, I can see that a file called Área, with 0 bytes
was created in /home/pedro.

If I choose any other target folder, the backup process, runs sucessfully.

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


How reproducible:

Create a target folder using accented characters and run the backup process.

Actual results:

Backup fails. Creates a 0 bytes file with accented characters until first space

Additional info:

This is not the first time something like this happens due to the name of my
Desktop folder.

Thanks for the report. I see a similar thing in upstream bug [1] which contains
patch which was committed today and will be included in next update of evolution
packages in Fedora 9. The package version will be 2.22.3-1.
