I have killed Evolution and restarted it, many times, in the past few
weeks. The restarts don't do any good. There are intermittent problems
 with Evolution on GNOME.

I've tried to add several contacts to the address book and they do not
get added, unless I go into  Contacts and add them as "new" contacts.
I do not remember this happening, before updating to CentOS 5.2.

Great. I have encountered the same problems. I was getting the error
message that Evolution Calendar (which I never use) had crashed and
then when I said OK, Bug Buddy can submit the error, I too got the
message that Gnome is too old.

I am also getting delays, when I try to view an email in my Inbox,
where it says that it is "formatting" the mail. Long time before I can
view emails, at times.
