1. Yes, it's absolutely reproducible.
2. For example, open Evolution, go to mail section and resize the window at minimum possible. The click on "Calendar"... the set size is lost.
On my netwook, an eee 10 inch, when I click on Calendar I can't manage to return on Mail. It's impossible. The only way is to kill the application (by console, obviously) and run again Evolution.

Then, the first configuration is impossible with a 10 inch screen.... unless, as in my case, you do not remember the button layout
"Cancel", "Next" etc...
Sure, you can use the Account Setup Utility in Administrator menu of Gnome but it is not the right way!

In my opinion, this bug should be marked as very urgent. Everyone using a netbook can't use Evolution well. We can't configure it. Try to see the Preferences dialog.

status: Incomplete → Confirmed

thank you, it's very important... there are no valid alternatives in gnome
