    This is now the case in 2.5-mm - bdflush() is deprecated and will print
    a stern warning on use.

    I suspect this will move to mainline shortly.

    Yes, Evolution is broken. The problem is actually ORBit. I have talked
    to Elliot Lee about this and we are not sure whether it is the kernel's
    or ORBit's fault. I originally thought it was ORBit's, but it is
    looking like the kernel's to be honest. The behavior of getpeername()
    wrt to sun_path seems to of changed. If any networking hacker wants to
    look into it, please do :)

    In the mean time, you CAN fix the problem by patching ORBit. I have a
    patch and RPM packages available at:

    Which works just fine for me.
