Description of problem:
Evolution crashes at unpredictable times (process /usr/bin/evolution killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)).

How reproducible:
Occurs frequently but at unpredictable times.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Evolution 2.30.2-1.fc13.x86_64
2. Use a module such as Tasks.
3. Open the Mail module.  A crash may then occur immediately, or after attempting to download mail, or at unpredictable times during usage of the Mail module such as flagging a message as important.
Actual results:
Process /usr/bin/evolution killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)

Thanks for a bug report. It sounds like an upstream bug [1]. The workaround is to disable Assistive Technologies, if possible. The related code to this part in Evolution tends to not be tested much.
