I am attaching a backtrace. Also the last message in the console that started

Backtrace for ics import

Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-10 21:01:48 UTC
Is this specific to RHEL3 U5, or is it reproducable with earlier versions of
RHEL3 evolution?

Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-10 21:15:52 UTC
Also, please install debuginfo packages and resubmit the bug.

(The bug appears to be in C code generated using a Perl script, so having a more
precise backtrace will be helpful.  Thanks)

Comment 5 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-10 21:16:19 UTC
"regenerate the backtrace" I meant to say

This did not seem to add much by way of info but here it is.

Comment 7 Edward Rousseau 2005-05-10 21:39:52 UTC
This behavior was not present in an earlier U5 build (re0309 - re0311 first beta).

Comment 8 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-11 03:25:48 UTC
Appears to be bogus code in ical_property_string_to_enum; looking at the
disassembly, access to the "enum_map" variable looks broken.

Looks a lot like bug 157354; I currently believe this to be another symptom of
the same cause (contradictory linkage specified for that symbol); am doing a
test build of a fix.


Comment 9 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-11 17:25:58 UTC
Successfully reproduced the crash on shalashaska with evolution-1.4.5-12.x86_64

Comment 10 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-11 17:55:54 UTC
Verified that it works on shalashaska with evolution-1.4.5-14.x86_64
