Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

I was looking at one email (in preview box).
Then I selected the current email in the list of emails above the preview pane.
Then I used keyboard (shift + up) to select multiple emails.
Evolution slowed down and became unresponsive (compiz grayed it out) and eventually crashed.

Upon Further inspection and general testing I am finding this to be the case. On occassion if the email has HTML in it you can see the crash almost immediately. If the email is text based you wont notice it until you try to click on the next email. I have been unable to find the things that cause the error exactly.

using a killall evolution on the command line and trying it again seems to correct the error and unable to duplicate.
