[Evolution] Bug#541410: evolution-plugins: BBDB ("Automatic Contacts") plugin causes crashes

Package: evolution-plugins
Version: 2.27.4-1
Severity: normal

the bbdb plugin, org-gnome-evolution-bbdb.eplug, caused evolution to crash
for me on sending an email or going to plugin settings.
Unfortunately, I lost both the backtrace and the console output due to an
unrelated intel xorg driver crash.
I resolved the crashes by removing the liborg-gnome-evolution-bbdb.so file,
since evolution still was crashing after adding the plugin to the gconf key.
Now it seems to work much better.

The console output said something like the bbdb list being out of sync and it
going to resync, then evolution hang.

I believe there is a new version incoming in experimental I might be able to
test in a few days.
