Probably due to the property bag not using a widget which handles UTF8 properly
which the rest of evo is careful to do.
This should be better in 1.4.x
I'm sorry that this bug has gone for so long without activity.
Have you tried this in more recent versions of Evolution? I believe that the
behaviour should have got substantially better in Evolution 1.4, and hopefully
has not regressed.
The current version of Evolution in Rawhide is 2.0.2 (which should be in FC3)
Sure, in 2.0.2 everything is ok
Thanks. At this stage, doing maintenance work on such old versions of
Evolution is not a priority for me, so I'm going to resolve this as
fixed in the CURRENTRELEASE
