Thanks for the bug report, but a backtrace is missing, please add this with your report.
Comment 2 André Klapper 2006-06-09 00:21:03 UTC
sebastien: i cannot reproduce this with evolution here. which locale do you use (= if you enter "locale" in a terminal window, what is the output?)
how exactly do you enter that value? do you use the new button or the menu option?

damien: no, this is not a crasher, so we do not need a stacktrace at all - one can try to reproduce this. beside the fact that it has nothing to do with this bug, your comment could be more useful - please provide at least information on *how* to provide a backtrace. for future reference, feel free to use the stock answer items below the text field for unconfirmed bugs, you find them directly below the text input field where you add your comment.
