When it crashes, bug buddy should come up and prompt you to get backtrace
information. That's what I need to get an idea of what's going on (it works for me)

Evolution Bug Buddy backtrace
Interestingly evolution does not always crash when changes are made to a
contact. However, I was able to achieve a crash.

Bug Buddy trace for Evolution crash
Appears to work properly with evolution-1.4.4-3 from rawhide -- at least my old
steps to reproduce don't currently seem to crash it.
Okay, closing as fixed. Reopen if it pops back up.
