Not only have I never seen this, I don't recall even hearing about it,
at least in these terms, despite being on the Evo list for lo these many
years. IOW I doubt it's all that common.
Be that as it may, one thing to try is to completely quit Evo
("evolution --force-shutdown") and run the following script, which
cleans up Evo's SQL databases:
for i in `find . -name folders.db`
echo "Rebuilding Table $i"
sqlite3 $i "vacuum;"
BTW the OP didn't say whether his mail is on an IMAP server or not. This
could possibly be relevant.
