Well I think I found the problem with the alarm notifier crashing.  Some
weeks ago I tried configuring the Exchange connector and finally gave
up.  I deleted the Exchange account from Evo but it seems that the
information wasn't actually removed from ~/evolution/exchange.

I have removed everything in ~/evolution/exchange and now the alarm
notifier doesn't seem to crash.

I'm thinking that was the source of more problems than the alarm
notifier.  Evolution should have stopped looking at any exchange stuff
as soon as I deleted the account but it didn't:-(
