    Evolution is one of the BUGGIEST pieces of code
    ever written (including Windows). My solution to the
    utter stupidity of a program that lets you tweak
    unimportant things and NOT the important things, was
    to rename the keyring thing physically on the disk
    and then somewhere in /usr/share there's some sort
    of dbus registration thing that mentions it... I
    removed it or commented it out.

    Even still... there are times that Evolution puts
    dbus into a tail spin (consumes LOTS of CPU).

    Arghh!! I have to connect to an Exchange server
    at work... and right now, Evolution is the only
    game in town.

    (Evolution is in a bad need for a complete
    rewrite... not a mere fix)

    Hope this helps... but I know it's not very
    specific. Most people loathe Evolution to the
    point that I did not believe it was worth
    taking the time to document what I did fully.

    .... frustrated... I decided to see what I could do to
    end this ordeal.

    Even if you Deny the use of the keyring manager, it
    will get used if you have Auto Complete turned on
    in your preferences.... I don't think there is a way
    to disable it.

    So... I Deny the key ring when prompted BUT do save
    the password. Then I removed the keyring software
    packages and took out the dbus entry from
    /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.gnome.keyring.service

    Now evolution uses its own saved password settings
    (without the keyring store) and as long as I never
    turn on Auto Completion of addresses... dbus doesn't
    consume all my CPU, gnome-keyring-daemon doesn't
    consume all my CPU.. in fact, I can for the first
    time actually leave Evolution running for hours on
    end.

    The gnome-keyring-daemon is broken or just bad
    somehow with Evolution. Without it, dbus will go
    nuts if you have Auto Complete turned on... so dbus
    becomes evil then... with both, they both will take
    up the majority of your CPU.

    Anyway, I can now run Evolution, and I'm happy enough.
    You can still to LDAP/AD searches by pressing the To:
    button... just won't have auto completion.
