Bug Description

If I have to contacts with the same email address evolution crashes when I add the second one.

Specifically: LDAP address book

The situation is that these are business contacts where a manager uses his assistant's email address and does not have one of his own. I wish to have the same email address recorded for both people.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

I have now filed this upstream as bug 765430

Maybe I should also file a bug/enhancement on ubuntu-bug to do this automatically :)
