This is a big downer and I hope that performance improves very soon.

* There's no "stop" button. I used that when evolution would go off=20
 into the weeds and yesterday I had to kill the process to get it to
 stop churning.

* I tried to use the overlay feature by supplying a URI to a=20
 password-protected ics file. I didn't see any way to furnish a=20
 username/password outside of the URI itself. A workaround might
 involve an ssh forward but I expected it to be easier.

* There's more support for fighting spam, which I haven't tested.
