Package: evolution-data-server
Version: 1.6.3-1
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

As discussed on the Evolution hackers mailing list under the subject "automated testing
of Evolution data server with SyncEvolution" I am filing this issue as a reminder that
I have a patch for the problem, available from the upstream bug report of the problem:

It would be great to apply this in Debian until it also makes its way into the upstream
version. There are patches for 1.6.3 and 1.8.1 (experimental?).
