Re: Clicking 'Tasks' defeat Evolution! What to do?

Likely this is

The key item with work-arounds is:

libgal2.4 version 2.4.2-1 (etch's) is buggy.
But libgnomecanvas2-0 version 2.8.0-1 (sarge's) did not use libgal2.4,
that's why the bug disappeared when downgrading.

Also, if you have libgnomecanvas2-0 version 2.10 (etch and sid's), 
and libgal2.4 version 2.4.3-1 (sid's), it works fine.

So, the work-arounds for this bug are:
* downgrade libgnomecanvas2-0 to sarge's version (2.8.0-1)
* upgrade libgal2.4 to sid's version (2.4.3-1).

Once libgal2.4 2.4.3-1 has entered etch, you can have an up-to-date etch
without this bug.

However, if you are pure sarge you shouldn't be seeing the new, buggy library, so your problem may lie

Meanwhile, thank Mozilla for Thunderbird.
