evolution crashed with SIGSEGV trying to authenticate with MAPI

Bug #348621 reported by Timothy Alexander on 2009-03-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openchange (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Using Jaunty.

Tried to setup auth against an exchange 2007 server, using the evolution-mapi plugin. First time it returned an error that it couldn't auth. Retyped my password, and evolution died, and apport popped up asking me to submit a bug.

The exchange server is SSL encrypted in the outlook settings. Might be the issue....

I have the same problem, as described by Timothy. Started from the command line, Evolution produces the following output:
libexchangemapi-Message: exchange-mapi-connection.c:2880: exchange_mapi_create_profile: lock(connect_lock)

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

So it seems that it succeeds with authentication but crashes immediately upon it. If you look at <tt>~/.evolution/mapi-profiles.ldb</tt>, you will see that there is a profile inside.

I have taken a look at the evolution-mapi source package. It seems to me that the <tt>SIGSEGV</tt> happens in <tt>src/libexchangemapi/exchange-mapi-connection.c:148</tt>

exchange_mapi_connection_close ()
  global_mapi_session = NULL;
  MAPIUninitialize (); // <- here is where we get a SIGSEGV
  /* TODO : Return status. get last error ? */
