Evolution 1.2.4 built from fresh ports today

Whenever I try to go to various tabs in the Evolution Settings dialog, the relevant component crashes. Sometimes it's the "Summary" component, other times it's the "Mail" component. I've seen no discernible pattern for these crashes, except that they don't occur without an existing evolution/ directory. I could simply remove my evolution/ directory, but I have archived emails which I'd rather not remove.
Upgrade to Evolution 1.2.4 from a previous version, and try to open the Settings menu.
Removing the Evolution directory and starting over does seem to solve the problem, but I don't think users would want to just dispose of their emails so their client will work again.
