Description Matthew Barnes 2008-07-09 16:58:55 UTC
Located several patches upstream that reportedly fix several crashes related to
autocompleting email addresses from Exchange address books when composing a new
mail message.  I'd like to backport these patches to the rebased Exchange
connector package for Evolution (version 2.8.0) and have a customer who is
frequently experiencing these crashes test the patches.

Related upstream bugs:

All of the patches were committed almost a year ago, and GNOME's ViewVC
indicates those bits of code have remained unchanged, which would suggest the
patches were good and did not cause any regressions.

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2008-07-09 19:00:44 UTC
The patch for GNOME #332979 was included in bug #279601.

So that just leaves the other two.
