[Evolution] Bug#380738: Evolution-exchange

Package: evolution-exchange
Version: 2.6.2-3
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

After configuring an exchange account in evolution (either by accessing
Edit->Preferences from within MUA or by running x-c-s) and launching it
I get a following popup error:

Error while Scanning folders in "Exchange server xxx.xxx.com"
Could not connect to Evolution Exchange backend process: No such file or

Meanwhile at the console I can see errors like these:

martin at sentinel:~$ evolution
CalDAV Eplugin starting up ...

(evolution-2.6:25620): evolution-shell-WARNING **: Cannot activate
'OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Exchange_Component:2.6': Child process did not
give an error message, unknown failure occurred

libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error.
  (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown) The name
org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files

(evolution-2.6:25620): Pango-WARNING **: Error loading GPOS table 4097

** (evolution-2.6:25620): WARNING **: Unexpected kerberos error

I've tried setting up exchange account directly in Evolution and using
x-c-s both with no success. 

When I've launched with --debug=logfile I was able to see Evo querying
exchange server for my folders and getting a response from that server
containing a complete list. But unfortunately whenever I try to expand
my Exchange account in evo it pops up the previously mentioned error
(Error while Scanning...)

I can successfully connect and use my exchange account using OWA.
