The fix for this was to set UseMetaFD to false. I would like to know whether setting UseMetaFD to false by default in the config file is al right.

Hi Rahul,

Is this true for all 64-bit Debian systems?  What release?  I've been trying to track this down and I haven't been able to reproduce it personally yet.  Any help that you could give would be useful.

Setting UseMetaFD is an acceptable workaround for the moment, but it should only be set if it needs to be (i.e. only on 64-bit systems).  We (the Calendar Server developers) don't currently test with it off, and the option shouldn't be sticking around forever; UseMetaFD is definitely the superior mode of operation except for this bug.
