> 2. Issue command 'evolution --force-shutdown'  in terminal to simulate a crash.

Evolution itself exits cleanly on --force-shutdown.
To simulate a crash do "kill -s SIGSEGV <evolution-pid>".
Comment 3 zhanghaiyan 2009-06-03 23:06:06 EDT
Tested with command "kill -s SIGSEGV <evolution-pid>" to simulate a crash, still no crash recovery window launches after restart evolution.

Also,during test evolution, sometimes evolution crashes itself. Restart crashed evolution, no crash recovery window launches.
