Cannot see anything in the part of evolution window where message text should be visible. This part is gray, no context menu at all.

The same when I try to open a message from local or remote folder in a separate window.

No reaction at all when button for composing new message is pressed

As result entire program is unusable for reading/sending e-mail

Additional info:
* package version(s)

Versions: evolution-3.34.0-1 evolution-data-server-3.34.0-1 evolution-ews-3.34.0-1
Rebuild due to dependence changes earlier evolution 3.32.4-1 evolution-data-server 3.32.4-1 evolution-ews 3.32.2-1: no improvement

* config and/or log files etc.

'journalctl -b -g evolution' output is in attached file

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Same problem seems to be reported to evolution bugs:

Steps to reproduce:

- start evolution and try to browse email messages
This task depends upon

Downgrading webkit2gtk to 2.24.4-1 seems to help

The latest webkit2gtk version did not work with with new evolution 3.34.1-1 either.
webkit2gdk downgrade to webkit2gtk-2.24.4-1 helped again.
