Thanks to Miles and Joseph for responding with workarounds for this.  It turns out that the 100% CPU is due to gtkhtml being compiled with gconf 1.0.5+.  When I recompiled gtkhtml --without-gconf, the full CPU problems went away.  I had tried downgrading gconf to 1.0.4 a few times earlier in the week, but it may have been while more things were broken because it didn't work previously.

However, the Calendar still crashes, this time in a different way.  I just submitted 13092 about that.

Hmmmm... I thought I'd killed everything running.  Who knows.  At any rate, I've re-entered the info.  I may start over from scratch anyway since I've probably got old cruft in my ~evolution.
