Agreed. Settings in /etc/abrt/abrt.conf are specific to ABRT and do not
influence Evolution in any way. The value you've changed only tells ABRT
how much disk space it may use. You could also set it to 0 (unlimited).


Unfortunately, raising this to 50K did not solve the problem.  I am
still getting evolution crashes, but the message related to the size of
the MaxCrashReportSize are no longer appearing.  I am not getting
crashes with any other software at this point.  I have tried to file a
report with BUGZILLA, but the process of doing so completes with an
error message that that there is inadequate information to post to

I have not seen this problem reported by anyone else so I may be dealing
with something that is related to my system.  However, I am close to
switching to a different MDA.

Thanks for  your comments!!!
