Using Fedora 10 Alpha, and upgraded Evolution to the following:
$ rpm -q evolution evolution-data-server
When evolution is started with the mail component as default, or when starting under another component and switching to the mail component, evolution crashed. When run from the command line, you see this error:
evolution: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/evolution/2.24/components/libevolution-mail.so: undefined symbol: gtk_html_set_caret_first_focus_anchor
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Evolution with mail as default, or switch to mail component.
Evolution does not crash.
The Evolution that came on the F10 Alpha CD worked fine, but did not include the Google Contacts functionality that was in this version.
I think you just need to update your gtkhtml3 package. Looks like a recently added symbol to gtkhtml3, and sometimes these things slip through and minimum version requirements don't get properly updated.
Version requirements corrected in evolution-2.23.90-2.fc10.
