Evolution 3.10.4 and Fedora 20

I have also observed this problem, not just in Evolution, but also in
Firefox.  In my case, the problem appears to be either (a) mail and web
pages that contain images or videos that have problematic render engines on
Linux, or (b) massive processor overload when web pages that have a large
number of videos on them (such as Facebook) try to render them all
simultaneously without limiting the resource utilization.

Because the problems are across more than one client application, I suspect
that the problem is actually an inability to limit resource utilization by
the desktop - in my case Gnome.  It has been like this for quite a few
Fedora releases now, and other than getting away from Gnome, I'm not sure
what else to do.  On an underpowered dual-core, these lockups are
devastating, and sometimes even require an ACPI reboot to recover from.
