upstream bugzilla gets tons of fedora reports as you know, many of them useless.
i will perhaps sometimes try to post the useful ones downstream here, if it helps.
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=443410#c7 looks like a useful trace
for one of those useless crashers, and i have that feeling that it's a fedora 7
issue, so reporting it downstream here. most probably triggered somewhere by
gtk+, and not by evolution.

Andre, any idea what version of Evolution and GTK+ were being used?
no, but the trace in this report here has
Distribution: Fedora release 7 (Moonshine)
Gnome Release: 2.18.3 2007-07-02 (Red Hat, Inc)
i've asked the reporters upstream.
Certainly it happened with
I've just tried to reproduce the bug with the latest versions
gtk+.x86_64 1.2.10-57.fc7 (this one is the same as above)
following my recipe at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=456482 but I
got an instance of the bug http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=445445
which unfortunately does not leave a stack trace. (I am betting that they are
both memory corruptions.)
I only added a link  to upstream bugzilla, even that bug waits on "Need Info"
state. Can you look and answer the question there, if possible? Thanks in advance.
Moving this back upstream. Whatever caused this seems to have been fixed in
Fedora 8. Stacktrace implies this is not an Evolution issue anyway.
