Comment 3 for bug 716433

I upgraded to Maverick (clean install, home directory retained) in the hope of improving the situation - it seems to be worse, and now often closes when I just click on the calendar.

In case it was a problem with char encoding (as suggested elsewhere) I created a new calendar.ics file (utf-8/windows) with no improvement.

When started from the terminal and it crashes I get this:

The program 'evolution' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadGC (invalid GC parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 17035 error_code 13 request_code 66 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Please help.... I really need the calendar to work and there doesn't seem to be a viable alternative other than MS Outlook.
