evolution search bar shows typed data from other applications on startup

Bug Description

I start evolution, and then switch to another window like a web browser. While I'm typing something into the other window, evolution grabs the focus, and some of the typed data appears in the evolution search bar for several seconds. Then, the search bar is cleared as evolution finishes starting. The problem is that from this point forward, this same text appears in the search bar for several seconds EVERY time I start evolution. This has been a security issue for me, as on one occasion I was typing a password in another window while evolution started - a portion of an old password now appears in the search bar of evolution each and every time I start evolution.
