Description Ralph Smith 2005-01-11 18:54:25 UTC
Description of problem:
evolution on x86_64 or intel EM64T crashes when doing transactions
with an Exchange server

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

How reproducible:
every time on specific system

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start up evolution
2. configure a mail folder for an existing account on an exchange server
3. click on the folder to initiate transaction
4. enter valid password in dialog box
Actual results:
crash message box

Expected results:
expanded list of folders on exchange server

Additional info:
You need to rebuild evolution using a newer version of binutils. 
(x86_64 relocation tables in shared libs are unreliable with the old
one.)  Also change "unsigned long" to guint32 in

Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2005-02-28 20:17:49 UTC
Thanks for this bug report.  I've gone through the uses of
CAMEL_STUB_ARG_UINT32 in the code and confirmed that it is actually
working on 32-bit values.

I'm applying a patch to fix the usage of unsigned long; I am trying to
get a fixed version into the next quarterly update.
