Package: evolution
Version: 3.12.9~git20141130.241663-1+b1
Followup-For: Bug #579473


I submitted what looks (at least to my un-technically trained eye) like a
similiar report to upstream

They looked at my backtrace and marked it as a duplicate of an existing bug
report that they say has been partially fixed, and also said the problem is
specifically in evolution-data-server:

"evolution-data-server 3.12.9 contains a fix from bug
#732018, which wasn't complete, unfortunately, and a new change was added into
the development version (see the other bug for more details). Ask your
distribution maintainers to backport the other patch too."

Looks like the other patch is in 3.15.91+? :

"It turned out that the crash can still happen in some cases. I added a
workaround and claim an error on console, instead of let glib-networking crash
the application with the below change.

Created commit a17c38c in eds master (3.15.91+)"

The upstream bug report is here:

And my bug report upstream (also experienced on Jessie, at the moment):

Upstream said that I should ask if that can be backported here, is there any
chance of that?
Hope this is helpful,
