When an application crashes, it can't produce a useful info in a log file. You
need to use an external tool like gdb or valgrind.

Of course, gdb backtrace is useful only when debugging symbols are not

Speaking from my own experience, if you need an email client that just works
(tm), avoid evolution: there are plenty of other similar programs...
