For the unpleasant but real truth, see Pauls answer.

As a quick workaround, however, if your own/company/whatever policy permits, 
you could try and install Evo 2.30.3 from the PPA

and see whether it solves your problem.

But be aware, that
- Evo 2.30 is as obsolete as 2.28 is
- while Jacob does a nice job providing Evo 2.30 for Ubuntu 10.04,
  this version is neither supported by Upstream, nor by Ubuntu,
  so no more fixes will go into currently provided 2.30.3, unless there
  would be a 2.30.4 release by the Evo maintainers (chances are as
  close to zero as you can imagine).

Just 2 cent,
