Hi all;

I've just started seeing a really disabling behavior after my latest
update to Ubuntu 8.04; before Tuesday or so things were working fine
(well, I was getting a lot of exchange backend crashes but those haven't
been fixed with the latest update either).  The problem is that every
meeting invite I get shows up as ONLY the plain text portion of the
multipart message.  The VCALENDAR attachment is not recognized and I
don't get the ability to accept/decline the meeting.

Not only is it not recognized as a VCALENDAR attachment, it's not
noticed as any kind of attachment at all!  There is no attachment button
on the email that would even let me save it.  But, if I use C-u and look
at the message source it looks fine and I can see the calendar part.

Also, my older system running Gutsy still works fine, even connecting to
the exact same exchange account and looking at exactly the same invites.

I've filed a bug in Launchpad, here:


The changelog for the latest update (note that evolution-exchange was
NOT updated; only evolution-data-server, evolution, and
evolution-plugins) is below.  If anyone has ANY idea what's going on
please let me know.  I pretty much can't use Evo at work if I can't
manage my calendar with it.
