Please don't attach archives with yet more archives in them.
It's not clear what is what either and I don't have time to sift through all this to figure it out. The key information I spotted so far:

  • client and server are running Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit
  • xpra version 2.4.1-r20907

If evolution is crashing, then it may well be a bug in evolution. Please try to get a gdb backtrace from evolution.
I've tried with Ubuntu 16.04 and evolution launched correctly, showed me the welcome wizard dialog.

Likely an evolution bug, I cannot reproduce here.
