Upstream bug about the same:


Comment 2 Milan Crha 2011-03-04 09:14:00 UTC
I tried to reproduce this myself, but with no luck. I see the function is called, but it doesn't crash for me. I compiled openchange from RHEL6.1 myself, against samba4 in F14, which is samba4-devel-4.0.0-24.alpha11.fc14.x86_64.

Seeing the steps, could this be related to the upstream bug [2], which was reported and a patch for it provided just yesterday by one user of evo-mapi? The steps seems to be quite close to it, thus could you give it a try, please?

Comment 3 Milan Crha 2011-03-07 10:14:44 UTC
Thinking of this a bit more, it seems to be like evolution-mapi is passing a NULL values for some property on item modification, which leads to a crash. So it is most likely a bug in evolution-mapi.

Could you find out which property is this about, please? Thanks in advance.

Strange the property is NULL, but could be doable, probably.
Could you give a try to this patch, please?

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support

This is another variation of the patch. I seem to miss one place in the previous version of this, maybe it'll help here.

Comment 19 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-10 06:37:23 UTC
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 20 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-11 01:44:03 UTC
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
