Re: [Evolution] Evolution crashing horribly on return key -- using Balsa to write this

Sorry, really old message that had gotten stuck in my postfix/sendmail
queue. I just restarted postfix to do some testing.

Hello all,

I have broken it again. Seems to be habit with me that whenever I have
Evolution working, I do something to break it again. Here goes...

I recently installed Gnome-1.4 on my Mandrake 7.2 system without any
problems. Then I used RedCarpet to install Evolution-0.10. Worked fine too.

Then a copuple of days ago I decided to get adventurous and wanted to
install the latest evolution from CVS. When I ran the script, it
said that it needed newer versions of gtkhtml which in turn needed  a new
gal. So I sucked down gal and gtkhtml from CVS, compiled and installed
them. The Evolution compiled and installed fine, but I am having severe

gtkhtml seemed to die whenever I pressed the return key. Somebody in the
mailing list mentioned that ORBit-0.5.8 was needed, so I compiled and
installed that. I am still having problems. 

I tried going back to the original setup that did work, but I can't get
there. I have re-installed evolution-0.10 from RedCarpet, but
gtkhtml-editor is crashing again. Perhaps someone can help me. I am
attaching backtrace on the crash from gnome-gtkhtml-editor and the versions
of the libraries I installed.

Incidentally, I checked out the latest evolution TODAY from CVS, and it is
refusing to compile in the intl directory since the Makefile is empty...

bonobo: 1.0.4 (from tarball)
gal: 0.8.0 (from tarball)
gtkhtml : 0.9.3 (from CVS, though the libs installed are called
ORBit: 0.5.8 (from tarball)
