Thanks for taking the time to report this bug.
Without a stack trace from the crash it's very hard to determine what caused it.
Can you get us a stack trace? Please see http://live.gnome.org/GettingTraces for more information on how to do so. Thanks in advance!
Comment 2 Heiko Adams 2008-12-12 17:46:55 EST
I've submitted a strack trace via bug-boddy. Bug-boddy told me http://crash.gnome.org/report/index/7493bfd8-c89e-11dd-ad92-0007e9333148?date=2008-12-12-22 as url

Since the URL returns an 530 error these are the crash-details:

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2008-12-14 17:19:25 EST
Thanks, but this information still doesn't contain a stack trace.  Can you try pasting the crash report directly from Bug Buddy?  (crash.gnome.org is rather useless, unfortunately.)

Also please make sure you have debugging information installed before posting the crash report.  (run "debuginfo-install evolution" as root)

Thanks in advance.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2008-12-14 17:21:27 EST
Also, you might try updating to evolution-2.24.2-2.fc10.

That updated fixed a serious bug that's been causing all kinds of strange side effects.  The crash you're seeing might be one of those side effects.
Comment 6 Heiko Adams 2008-12-14 18:02:19 EST
Updating to evolution-2.24.2-2.fc10 solved this problem. Thanks for the fast help.
Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2008-12-14 18:16:39 EST
