The patch did not apply cleanly on 3.4.4

I've manually adapted the patch and tested it with 3.4.4-3 from Debian

Please find the revised version enclosed - I believe this is good for
the 3.4 branch in upstream evolution-data-server too:

git checkout gnome-3-4
git cherry-pick 198bceaf20df82764c36ad6787bd828705dc31c5
- merge conflict appears, resolve it by using my patch and then commit

It is probably more than what I need anyway - I'm happy to keep running
3.4.x as long as this issue is fixed

I'm very busy with my own packages, but I need this to work, so I've
adapted the patch for 3.4.4 and I hope you will push it out as part of
an update to stable.  Just put it in the debian/patches directory and
update debian/patches/series

Personally, I'm more interested in things like making click-to-dial work
(see my sipdialer package for example) - it almost works from icedove
now and I would appreciate feedback about how to get it working from
Evolution too.
