Description Jonathan Kamens 2007-03-28 13:38:49 UTC
I have an email message (in an Exchange folder, although I don't know if that
makes a difference) with an attachment called zones.tar.  I click "Save" and it
pops up a dialog.  In the "Location" field, I enter "/tmp/zones.tar" and hit
Enter.  Instead of creating the file /tmp/zones.tar, it creates an empty
directory called /tmp/zones.tar and doesn't save the attachment.

Next, I try simply popping up the save dialog and clicking the "Save" button,
which presumably should save the file in my home directory since that's what's
selected in the Places list if I don't change anything.  It does in fact save
the file in my home directory, but the dialog remains popped up instead of

I'm using evolution-2.10.0-2.fc7.

Confirming.  Looks like a regression from Evolution 2.8.

Forwarding the bug upstream [1], but leaving it open here so we can track it for
Fedora 7.


Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-14 23:08:04 UTC
Fixed the reproducible parts in evolution-2.10.1-4.fc7.

See the upstream bug for details on the unreproducible parts.
