Evolution-addressbook crashes while adding/modifying contacts

I have a backtrace but I don't think is very useful.

The backtrace is completely non-useful.... I've added contacts here, so exactly
what did you do to reproduce?
This is one of those hit or miss bugs. I usually hit it while modifing some
addresses of contacts I already have. Is their a debug option I can run evo under?
Unfortunately not for the addressbook
Closing due to lack of reproducability. If you have a way to reproduce or a
backtrace with information, feel free to reopen this bug.
Evolution seg faults after about a minute after I open a contact and try editing
it. Evolution itself keep running, but the contacts become unavailable. The
only way to get them back is to shut down Evolution and restart it, which is
futile because as soon as I try editing a contact, the contact editor seg faults
again! This has been occurring on a regular basis since I started to use
Evolution in RH 8.0 (currently I'm running RH 9).
Occasionally I can edit a contact without experiencing a seg fault, but that's
few and far between.
I don't how to do a backtrace, so if that's what you're looking for, I'll need
instructions on how to do it.
