it would be good to see a backtrace of the frozen evolution, with
debuginfo packages for evolution and evolution-data-server installed, to
see where it got frozen and hopefully why. You can catch such backtrace
of running evolution with gdb command:
   $ gdb --batch --ex "t a a bt" -pid=`pidof evolution` &>bt.txt
Check the content of the resulting bt.txt file, that it doesn't expose
any private information. I usually search for "pass" (quotes for clarity

When it comes back, I can
occasionally edit my typed characters and sometimes generate a new
autocomplete suggestion. More often, no suggestion appears, and when I
change to Contacts mode, I discover that the WebDAV address book is
empty and Evolution has begun to download it again from the server from
scratch, a time-consuming process. 

Would you mind to file this as a bug report to
please? It should be fixable. Please do not forget to send here a bug
link, for any future reference.
        Thanks and bye,
