It's no major issue, but Evolution tends to take an age to close down.
I have a few 'virtual' folders. Although I have cut down the virtual
folder list dramatically as it affected  the start up time, I still
have about 25 'virtual' folders that I use to split my personal,
business and family mail. The Evolution shut down time can run into
10-15 minutes.
I have about 46,000 inbox mails and 8000 sent mails that are being
processed into the virtual folders.
Anyone have any idea as to why it's taking so long? 
Is your mail retrieved using IMAP, POP or Exchange/EWS, or is it all
locally retrieved?   How much mail do you have?  Have you tried running
it from the command line with some of the debugging switches turned on
to see what it's doing in that time?
(See as referenced from
Help -> Contents)
The mail is all POP. 11 active POP mail collection accounts. 
46,000 items in the inbox and 8,000 sent, 25 virtual folders.
No I haven't run it from the command line as yet, as I thought I'd
check to see if it was a common problem here first.
If no one else is experiencing a similar issue, I'll try the debug
route and see what's happening.

I've seen this.  It happens once in a while, without much consistency.
Evolution 'grays out' after I hit close and just sits there, and sits
there, and sits there....  I shutdown anyway, and there haven't been any
issues.   When sitting there stalled it really doesn't appear to be
doing anything.  My *guess* is that the issue is related to the
miserable way Evolution handles dropped or lost network connections
[basically it pretends they didn't happen and gets all plugged up].

While I have a bit of mail in "Local Computer" almost all my mailboxes
are via IMAP [why would anyone use anything else?!].  I have a few large
virtual folders.
