Package: reportbug
Version: 3.48
Severity: minor

Sorry, to bother you but I'm pissed off with evolution constantly crashing or failing to do what expected, so I tried to file a bug today but 

130) #527029  [evolution] error while installing scrollkeeper
  131) #527459  evolution: Search by size not in kB but in bytes
  132) #529176  evolution: Compose window disappears every so often in
the middle of editing
  133) #529382  evolution: Cannot open URL in email message

UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode bytes in position 111-112:
unexpected end of data

I had similar utf error in evolution (will file the bug next).

I installed yesterd ocaml dev/libs/utils. Until yesterday everything was fine.

Thanks for paying attention.
