Severity: grave

Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

i can't start or use evolution anymore.

* What led up to the situation?

I did the usual updates and rebooted the machine.

* What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)?

When i start evolution from the kde desktop via starter or konsole evolution is
killed via SEGV.

* What was the outcome of this action?

The following message is shown:

Evolution kann nicht gestartet werden.
Eine andere Instanz von Evolution könnte nicht reagieren.
