Bug Description

Since upgrading to Oneiric, double-clicking on any date in the Calendar applet no longer opens Evolution to that date. Instead, nothing happens. Verifying in the Overview section of control-center confirms that Evolution is selected as the calendar application, so it must be caused by something else.

I cannot quite reproduce this issue; instead I see that evolution gets started here, is set to today's date but the small calendar view immediately switches to January 1, 1970. I think this is an issue with the applets though, rather than in evolution itself.

To clarify, you're seeing this bug with the standard gnome-panel, right? (ie. not gnome Shell, and not unity?)

Yes, this is in the gnome-panel used by gnome-session-fallback.

To clarify it is the small calendar that is the wrong date. However if I select the 'add event...' option the small calendar is accurate. I was thinking this was an issue with the applet until I found this report that is on standard Gnome.

Charles, this bug report is not about the date being wrong, it is about Evolution not opening at all. For the date issue, see bug 919157.
