In august 2008 I reported #458587 (mail-notification needs rebuild for evolution 2.24) which was fixed. However, it introduced a new regression. Every time evolution starts, evolution immediately crashes. When evolution is started without plugins (evolution --disable-eplugin) everything is okay (but the mail notification plugin doesn't load of course).
After searching upstream's bugtracker I stumbled upon https://bugs.launchpad.net/mail-notification/+bug/251031 which looks exactly like the crash I was having. The cause of the problem wasn't known yet so I decided to look into it myself. I've found out that the cause of the regression is a change in the behaviour in one of the functions in evolution-data-server 2.23.5. I've proposed a patch to fix this behaviour at august 12 2008. However, upstream hasn't responded to it yet and it doesn't look like a new release of mail-notification is coming any day now..
So that's why I want to ask you if you want to incorporate my patch in the Fedora package of mail-notification. The patch is compatible with both old and new (2.23.5+) versions of evolution.
Re-built with your patch, see
