Getting a backtrace of the crashes would be a good start. You can get one easily by clicking on the "send upstream" button of the dialog which is opened when it crashes, the details of the window opened then has the backtrace. Other way getting a backtrace using gdb:
- gdb evolution
(gdb) run
then evolution runs to gdb
when it crashes go to the gdb prompt
(gdb) thread apply all bt

you can also attach it (it makes no difference for the backtrace, debug
symbols are used the same way if you run or attach it), you just have to
enter "continue" on the gdb prompt then

random crashes
