syncing: avoid segfault for invalid text inside items (FDO #90118)

As reported by Canonical, syncing fails if data items contain
text which is not correct UTF-8 in one of the fields that
SyncEvolution logs in the command line output (like SUMMARY of
a calendar event).

That is because the byte string coming from the item is passed
unchecked to the D-Bus implementation for transmission via D-Bus. But
D-Bus strings must be correct UTF-8, so depending on the D-Bus library
in use, one gets a segfault (GIO D-Bus, due to an unchecked NULL
pointer access) or an "out of memory" error (libdbus, which checks for

What the D-Bus bindings now do is checking the string in advance (to
avoid error messages inside the D-Bus implementations) and then
replacing all invalid bytes with question marks. The rest of the
string is preserved.

Handling this inside the D-Bus binding layer is not the "correct"
solution (which would be to check for UTF-8 in the higher layers were
such bad data might get into SyncEvolution), but it is the less
intrusive and more complete one. Changing the bindings such that all
strings must be declared explicitly as "UTF-8 string" would have been
a way to find all places where such checks are missing, but it turned
out to be too complex and requiring too many changes.

file backend: log item manipulation

Extracting a meaningful description of each item from the Synthesis
engine when updating and adding items is easy to do for items of
certain known types (contacts and calendar items) and arguably an
improvement; in particular it makes tests like
TestCmdline.testSyncOutput more realistic.
