Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

I had created an address book that was storing on Google Contacts. One of the contacts had two last names ("Natty Narwhal"), which I confirmed by viewing the detailed name editing window. Evolution was sorting the contact under the last last name ("Narhwal"). I used the drop-down list for "File Under:" to change file under to the first last name ("Natty Narwhal"). Evolution crashed.

On restart, the contact was still sorted under the last last name ("Narwhal"), and the drop-down for "File Under:" is disabled.

Thanks for the report, can you still reproduce this with evolution 2.32.2 on Natty? Please test and comment back, thanks!.

Sorry. I can't get the current Natty beta to install in version 3.2 of VirtualBox, which is the one I use on 10.04. I have no way to test. I'd love to help but I can't afford to spend more time on it.

I upgraded VirtualBox and got 11.04 to install (the official release, not beta). When I try to reproduce the bug, I'm not allowed to pull down the "File Under:" drop-down (it's disabled). So I guess this bug is "fixed". Thanks.

marking it as such then, closing.
