Evolution locking up

I recently updated my server to 8.2 and all my ports, but I am sure some
library needs to be recompiled.  I did have to force a lot of
portupgrades because of library changes, libcrypt I believe.  After
being up awhile evolution will go into an unresponsive state, in fact
the window will be grayed out.  I recompiled evolution with debugging 
symbols and ran gcore on a stuck process.  Unfortunately the back trace
is not very useful,

When it is stuck and I try a strace, I get device is busy. I did try
truss and then evolution died.  Do you think I need recompile glib?
I have an almost identical setup at work and evolution works fine.
I also noticed that dbus-daemon always is near the "top" of a top run.
Its not taking a lot of resources, I just haven't seen it, so active
