you're more than likely right, i found this bug a few moments ago
which looks similar to the problem i'm getting:

i probably exaggerated - it does re-start pretty quickly (approx 10
seconds), but occasionally the whole system seems to hang and not
accept any input after that. occasionally i need to reboot completely,
mostly when i'm trying to read a text message

ah, it just did it:
"Enlightenment Error"
This is very bad. Enlightenment SEGV'd

This is not meant to happen and is likely a sign of a bug in
Enlightenment or the libraries it relies on. You can gdb attach to
this process now to try debug it or you could exit, or just hit
restart to try and get your desktop back the way it was.

Please compile everything woth -g flags in your CFLAGS

(F1) Recover (F2) Exit
