I can figure out what's happening and fix if I can figure out how to

really gdb attach to the running process? That never appears to work for
me (RedHat 6.2).

  Red Hat 6.2 comes with a buggy GDB that gets very confused about
threads if I recall correctly.

  But anyway, the way we usually do it is by running evolution-mail in a
separate GDB before starting the shell.  If you run a component by
itself, it will register on OAF and wait for other components to invoke

The Mozilla people wrote a handy document for debugging Mozilla. This
kind of thing would be INCREDIBLY useful for Evolution users who can code.
It will also be well worth the time spent writing it. 

  I agree.  We should start writing something like this at some point...
