Description smitna 2015-12-06 21:39:53 UTC
Description of problem:
Issue occurs during Evolution startup.  The application window is visible but only briefly, maybe 1 second or so; not long enough for user interaction.

I have been alternating between Wayland and X11 sessions, so I can help test Wayland as described here:

Currently, I have observed this issue only in Wayland sessions; however, it does not happen consistently.

Version-Release number of selected component:

Lately, Evolution has been functional in a GNOME/Wayland session.  According to abrt, last occurrence was about 5 days ago.

Troubleshooting aside, I intend to run GNOME/Wayland sessions exclusively from now on.  I will update this report within a month.
