I'm not sure whether this is the same bug, since my problems with starting
Evolution began only on Friday 22 August 2008, running an up-to-date AMD64
Lenny (with a handfull of Sid packages). Evolution was running fine up to
that time, when after a reboot of my computer an error message appeared:

   Evolution appears to have exited unexpectedly the last time it was
   run. As a precautionary measure, all preview panes will be hidden.
   You can restore the preview panes from the View menu.

But the Evolution won't start after pressing the Ignore or Recover
buttons; anyway, it hadn't exited unexpectedly. Starting it in a terminal

   henk at amd64:~$ evolution
   CalDAV Eplugin starting up ...
   evolution-shell-Message: Killing old version of evolution-data-server...
   ** (evolution:6139): DEBUG: mailto URL command: evolution %s
   ** (evolution:6139): DEBUG: mailto URL program: evolution
   Segmentation fault

before showing the above error message in a separate window.

I then started my laptop (also with an up-to-date AMD64 Lenny), and there
the same problem with Evolution.

I did an strace, but my output looks different from that of the OP. I
don't want to hijack his bug report, so just ignore this message if you
think it doesn't relate.
