Thanks for a bug report. This is same as bug #544759 for Fedora, which was marked as a duplicate and that one moved to an upstream bug , which was unfortunately closed as invalid. Anyway, looking around for XAllocID bugs I found at least these  where subject contains "XAllocID". From that I would assume it's something with gtk2, as stated in bug #559199 comment #3.
I saw something similar upstream too, which was caused by evolution-mapi, calling g_free on something allocated with g_slice or g_slice_free called on a g_new0 memory, I do not recall precisely, but you are mentioning above you are using only IMAP, thus that shouldn't be the case.
Thus I'm moving this to gtk2.
Hello, yes I use only imap.
