I keep getting crashes preceeded by an error message:

I've been getting this for the past week. It happens everytime I send an
e-mail which I sign with my GPG key. The error I get is:

GConf error: Bad key or directory name: "ïUa
/apps/evolution/mail/filters/log0_width": Must begin with a slash '/'

All further errors shown only on terminal.

I don't have any mail filters setup on this machine (I use filters at home,
although they tend to stop work properly after a few months).

I'm on Ubuntu 8.10 too, with all updates available as of today.

I made a dump of gconf (gconftool-2 -R) which I put at

Any pointers on what to do to fix this, or provide more info to people with
more knowledge than I have, would be highly appreciated (should I file this
as a bug somewhere). 

Right now, what I do is,

write the mail, hit send,
enter pass phrase for the GPG-key, hit OK,
evolution shows the error dialog, hit OK,
evolution dies,
I restart evolution,
hit F9 to "Send and receive" messages which will send the message I just
wrote (it's not actually sent until this point).
