Again, I'm on F10 and not F9 -- but I do have Evo installed.  I added
a task and an appointment to "On This Computer," made sure (using
gconf-editor) that the clock was set to display tasks and
appointments, and still can't reproduce the crash.  I don't doubt at
all that you're having this problem -- I just can't make it happen
here.

I'm no expert in debugging problems like these -- maybe the
#fedora-desktop channel on GIMPnet will help if you asked nicely
there?
