Progress!  Sort of.  I upgraded to Evolution 3.0.2 [openSUSE 11.4 x64
using the GNOME  repo].

With this version the attachments appear, with names.  Looks great.  But
the contents of the attachment when I open it are.... base64 text.
Evolution is not decoding from base64 back to the files actual content?

I dug the X-EVOLUTION-CALDAV-ATTACHMENT-NAME property out of the
Evolution source code.
