Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

I'm using Unity.

If I click on the clock, it shows yesterday's date above the calendar, but highlight's today's date in the calendar grid. I've also seen it highlight the wrong date.

I can run "date" in a terminal and it shows the correct date. If I log out and log back in, the calendar is now correct.

Generally, it looks like it's showing me the date of the last time I looked at the calendar, but it might be the last time I logged in.

Also, I don't use evolution. I've removed it with:

    sudo apt-get purge evolution

Running
    dpkg -l|grep -i evolution
shows some evolution packages: evolution-common evolution-data-server evolution-data-server-common evolution-plugins evolution-webcal

if you use the indicator that's the wrong component the bug is on

@Sebastien: Yes it's the indicator, not gnome-panel and it is a duplicate of #793450.

I experience this bug sometimes when I leave my computer on over the night. For the first time I open the calendar applet it still highlights the previous day. Closing and opening the applet again updates the highlight.
