  evolution crashes when more than one mail account is activated

Status in Evolution Data Server:
Status in evolution-data-server package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Evolution  will crash at mail retrieval  when more than one mail
  account is activated (i.e. the checkbox is checked on the main
  accounts screen).  Running evolution from terminal gives the following
  (the Estonian phrase means "Key file does not have group 'Passwords-
  Mail' "):

  ** (evolution:7251): DEBUG: mailto URL command: evolution %s
  ** (evolution:7251): DEBUG: mailto URL program: evolution
  ** (evolution:7251): DEBUG: EI: SHELL STARTUP
  e-data-server-ui-Message: Unable to find password(s) in keyring (Keyring reports: Vastavusi pole)
  e-data-server-ui-Message: Võtmefail ei sisalda gruppi 'Passwords-Mail'
  Segmentation fault

  Tested on 64-bit Ubuntu 9.04 with Evolution 2.26.1. The bug was also
  present in 32bit Intrepid shortly after its release, but went away
  with upgrades a couple of days after release.

  A temporary solution is to keep multiple accounts but keep only one
  active (and after crash, do not let it retrieve mail, but set the
  accounts back to 'single active account mode' before attempting
  retrieval) - but the need for constant change is quite a nuisance when
  working at different places.
