The traditional road would be installing the -debuginfo packages for
evolution and all it's dependencies, then use gdb to gain a bit of
insight into what's going on. It would be nice if you could expand on
the issue you are seeing, it's likely there's already a bug filed on the
issue which might give you additional information on where to start
digging.

Upstream for evolution is Novell, the very latest code is available via
the GNOME SVN repo at svn.gnome.org.
