I can also confirm this bug. Almost always crashes out this way. Have to kill it manually.

When evolution owners changed from open office to Libre Office and the
various folders relocated within the directory I did not understand how
to make the transition; it went poorly. Could this be related to the
trouble? Thank you for confirming the problem. Dave.

This started happening to me a few days ago too...

There are 2 warnings on the terminal:
(evolution:28155): evolution-mail-WARNING **: Failed to write data to cache stream: Operation was cancelled

Any ideas?

Another data point:
In Preferences -> Mail Preferences -> HTML Messages, checking the ''Never load images from the Internet" options solves the problem for me. The "Unknown background operation" status notifications go away when I do this.

This leads me to believe that the bug is related to webkit html mail display fetching images gone awry.

This still happens with the update to Quantal's evolution of today (Jan 18).

I haven't had to externally kill evolution since updating my software a few days ago. I'm hopeful that the program improved. It was quite a nuisance---every time I wrote a message I had to save a copy of the text before sending so it wouldn't be lost. I was restarting evolution 8 times a day or so, and I'm certainly no email "use" record holder.
Thank you.

I'll bet that solved the problem rather than a change to evolution.
