probably related to gtkhtml (the editor used by Evo). FWIW, I cannot reproduce on 2.31 GIT.

I can confirm this. I am running this version of Evolution:
I'm on a Maverick.

@Jonh Wendell, that didn't help.

if that's working now it's likely due to gtk rgba which has been turned off now until alpha2 since no hacker has time to work on those issues until then...
