Package: evolution
Followup-For: Bug #487102

After upgrading from Etch to Lenny calendar events from Outlook are no
longer recognized.  They are displayed simply as a normal message.
Evolution does not display the expected calendar controls.  It appears
to be completely non-functional.

This worked in the Etch version of Evolution.
