Bug description:
  [Impact] Google calendar integration is broken, and users are
  requested to re-enter their Google password everytime they log in, or
  everytime they enable/disable their Google account from the System

  [Test Case]
  1) open gnome-online-accounts
  2) click + and add a google account
  3) enter user name and password
  4) confirm permissions for gnome
  5) Black window pops up and asks for google password, but does not accept the correct password.
      Google Contacts are not available in Gnome or Thunderbird

  [Regression Potential] Minimal: the fix is a backport of a patch from
  the evolution-data-server code which is already in 14.10, and which
  only touches the calendar code (which is currently broken).


  Gnome online accounts requires autentication on startup, but even typing the correct password in the box, the program says the password is wrong. By the way evolution and other programs work well with online accounts. I'm using Ubuntu-gnome 14.04 LTS 64bit on different machines and have the same behaviour.
  Just to be clear: online-accounts works well, just at startup it opens an "administration" window where it requires to insert the password for my google accounts; if I type the correct password it says that the password is wrong, the only way to close the window is to click on "discard" and then all works well.
