[Evolution] Evolution 0.10 branch on Solaris

Hi evolution hackers,

I built evolution from the evolution-0-10-branch of 'Fri Apr 27 00:00:01 PDT 2001'
on Solaris 8. It built out of the box. (-:

It came up but the mail component was not started. )-:
When trying to run evolution-mail first and then evolution in a separate window
it hangs after cycling through the splash screen.
Running evolution-mail in gdb we've found that it was trying to read the netscape
preferences in an infinite loop and failed to detect the end of the file.

After applying this fix:

                        return FALSE;
---patch ends-----8<------------------

There is still a problem though.

Even after applying the above patch, evolution would not start the evolution-mail
component.  It works if I start the mail component in a separate window before
running evolution.  It does this in both my Linux and Solaris builds.

If I just run evolution I see the following messages:

---evolution output begins-----8<------------------

When I click on the Inbox icon it repeats the last message:

Any ideas why this happens?

I use gal and oaf from the CVS HEAD/stable branch of the same date and time.
The rest of the GNOME packages are the 1.4 release's versions.
