I filed a bug with freebsd-ports:


but unfortunately the maintainer (Marcus) cannot reproduce the problem 
with his version of Exchange. So he closed this bug with FreeBSD. 
Marcus asked that I file a bug with the GNOME community, but I haven't 
had the time to understand where/how to file appropriately.

Since I  can only reproduce the problem against my corporate Exchange 
instance, I think we still need a widely reproducibly test case.  It is 
not really clear that matinko and I have the same cause here.

[Answering my own question]

	/usr/ports/mail/evolution$ make CFLAGS="-g" STRIP=" " install

did the trick.

With a little bit of gdb attaching, this bug smells like a thread 
deadlocking problem.  I haven't had enough time to check much into this 
further, but am ready to follow instructions if I can get more 
information into someone else's hands.
