Evolution 2-2 and Evolution-exchange

Hi Jonathan,
I've, (based on 30 mins use only) got evolution more stable in talking
to exchange. Basically, syncing the exchange GAL was killing the
evolution connector - I used "strace" on the evolution-exchange
connector to find this out. 

What I've done to make it more stable, which has worked for this
afternoon is:
    made sure the GAL returns no more than 50 address book entries per
    turned off caching the GAL for offline use.

These combined changes have stopped the evolution-exchange process from
getting into long transactions with exchange and getting stuck into some
kind of loop or unfinished poll.

Let me know how this works for you if you decide to try the changes.
