You don't say which desktop you're running. I run Evolution under KDE
for example, and had some minor problems around when F20 was released,
due to some missing Gnome packages. Not the same as what you describe,
but still related to GUI issues.

In any case, you might find it useful to ask on the Evolution list. See



Thanks for your response.  My mistake in not stipulating the desktop; I
am using a gnome desktop. 

I had searched the evolution list, but did not see an entry similar to
my problem.  Since this problem not only 'freezes' the evolution
display, but also freezes the entire gui, I thought starting here would
be better. (Sorry about the use of 'freeze', but I can not think of a
better word).  

Unfortunately, this problem is occurring on more than one machine, and
it has happened to me as well; I would suspect that this affects others

I will wait a couple of days before I post this on the evolution list to
see if others have had this problem here.  

Thanks again for your response,
