Mark: Thanks. I am a brand new member of this club. I did *not* have this
problem, until I updated (I didn't RFM and I did yum update instead of yum
upgrade....) to CentOS 5.2.

As I  wrote in my first post, I also tried this using KDE and Evolution
crashed there when I closed it, as it does in GNOME. It is an intermittent
thing, but rather common.  Has this been documented, in the CentOS Bugzilla
and/or Upstream Bugzilla? There seem to be two (2) unrelated problems: (a)
Evolution Calendar crashing. when closing Evolution (although I never use
Evolution Calendar) and (b) The problem with Bug Buddy not being able to
send the Error data it collects, because it want's a more recent version of
GNOME.  I have used Evolution for email for several years and this  problem
closing it is something that for me began after I began using CentOS 5.2.  I
rarely use KDE, but I will try to remember to use KDE more frequently, so I
can verify my belief that Evolution crashes in KDE, just like it  does in
GNOME. Lanny
