fix for bug-buddy crash
Not directly evolution-related, but not having bug-buddy working makes
debugging much harder, so I'm mentioning it here anyway:
Note that the root-cause of the bug-buddy crash is actually libhttp.so
in gnome-vfs2 so I assume the bug really affects anything that wants
to make an http connection via VFS. Not that I understand any of
I can't resist to mention that this bug would have been found
trivially if the build-logs on a 64-bit machine were post-processed
with my check-implicit-pointer script (attached below for
