As I said, none of these leave behind any clues in logs or elsewhere
that I've been able to find. That means no traces, no cores, no bad
log messages, nothing.
Also, looking at Launchpad and searching for the words "crash" or
"hang" in Evolution reports gives me a total of 117 open bugs (in some
stage of Open). Going over to Gnome.org and looking through their bug
list, the word "crash" returns 493 bugs and "hang" returns 511 bugs.
So 1000 open bugs for Evolution (that use the words "crash" or "hang")
over at gnome.org...
It would be nice if a hang (which is what I see more frequently) would
generate a backtrace, but hangs usually do not. A frozen application
can't generate that kind of report.
