Evolution crashes when adding multiple IMs to a contact

Bug Description

When I add multiple different IMs to an evolution contact, it kinda-sorta-crashes... my X session: The whole desktop becomes unresponsive. I can move the mouse cursor and switch desktops, but that's about it.

When I log in remotely or via another virtual terminal and kill (-15) evolution, everything switches back to normal.

This is on Ubuntu 11.04, with evolution 2.32.2-0ubuntu7.

I can reproduce this bug in a completely virgin user profile.

Steps to reproduce:
Open Evolution Contacts. Add new Contact. In the Contact Editor, enter a name ("Joe Software Guy"), an Instant Messaging contact (Jabber: "joesoft@thisoneserver"), then add another Instant Messaging contact of a different service type (ICQ: "123456789"). Click OK.

What I expected to happen: Contact Editor closes, new contact in address book.

What happened instead: Evolution crashes. This time, I can kill it via WM controls. If I open Evolution again I see the new contact in the address book. If I click on it, Evolution crashes my X session.

Ideas on how to delete contacts without clicking on them would also be greatly appreciated right now. ;)
