Needs complete output (thread apply all bt), plus please install debug
packages for glib2, gtk+2 and evolution.


Thanks adre,

installed the dbg packages you referenced, though still got a message saying:
## Begin quote

## End quote

First time I tried to get the backtrace things had frozen too badly,
couldn't activate the terminal, had to kill from VT1 again. Second
time I managed it by being a bit quicker switching to the terminal.
Here's what was spit out from running BT after the freeze

I am reliably reproducing the error now, but exiting the program after
a succesfuly run in address book, (ie., when the address book is open
quit evolution) upon restarting the freeze occurs. It is not
recoverable except by killing the app from a VT.

Lot of gtk errors, so on a whim I'm going to switch engines to the
standard clearlooks. Running nodoko right now, and experienced crashed
previously by using the equinox theme engine. Not available on my
standard Debian Squeeze inst.

I'm running evolution Version: 2.30.3-5 on Debian Squeeze. Should
probably file a bug with my distro but I'll wait to hear what you
think about this and try switchign engines.
