Package: evolution
Version: 3.0.3-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
I've an issue regarding the evolution package that is installed on my
system. I've an IMAP-Account that evolution can't connect to. I get
the error:

Error while Scanning folders in 'IMAP server <hereismyIMAP>

You must be working online to complete this operation

This happens even with POP-Protocoll. I've checked the connection with
icedove, too. With icedove I get a connect to the IMAP system.

To investigate in this behaviour I tried to start evolution from a
clean environment. For this I deleted the following folders in my


After restarting my system I could configure my connection from scatch
again: I got the same behaviour.

After this I tried to get more information with strace and the debug

strace -o evo_trace.log evolution --debug evo_debug.txt

My debug output is as follows:

** (evolution:6353): CRITICAL **: categories_icon_theme_hack: assertion `filename != NULL && *filename != '\0'' failed

(evolution:6353): evolution-network-manager-WARNING **: network_manager_check_initial_state: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files

(evolution:6353): evolution-mail-importer-WARNING **: Broken line

The trace output is more than 5 MB large. So I won't attach it to this
report. When you want it I'll send it to you.

I can't handle with these lines. Can you help me to look for the cause
of the issue?

Many thanks in advance from Germany
