Bug Description

Evolution seems to throw up various GConf error dialogs, and I think that it may be related to waking from sleep. One example is "GConf error: Configuration server couldn't be contacted: D-BUS error: Method "Set" with signature "s(ib)" on interface "org.gnome.GConf.Database" doesn't exist". There are other messages, similar, but different. In my case, there are about a dozen such error dialogs, and in some cases, it required that I killall the Evolution process to regain control.

I can confirm getting the same errors. In my case there was no sleep involved, these errors occurred after having let evolution sit idling for a few hours. Once one error dialogue appeared it seems like that more appear.

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in evolution (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I get the same errors. I see a bunch of dialog alerts come up. I'm seeing these when evolution is running in the background (it may be triggered on the automatic mail check?). I am running it on a desktop that I never put to sleep.
