Re: [Evolution] Summary and folder mismatch, even after a sync

An eaiser fix is to just remove the .ev-summary file in the folder, that
way you dont lose your messages at least.

It happens because it tried to re-fresh the summary to match the folder,
but after doing that, it still didn't make sense.  i.e. it tried to load
a message from a specific spot in the file, but the message wasn't
there.  The summary is like an index of the mailbox contents, which
includes a 'summary' of each message (like subject, etc), as well as
(for mbox files) a pointer to the start of the message inside the mbox. 
The error is basically when that pointer doesn't match the file.

Is there anything that happens to start it happening?  Like running out
of disk or something like that?  There's a long-outstanding bug for this
one, but i haven't a clue how to fix it.

Theoretically it should only happen if the mailbox is modified by
another client *while* evolution has the mailbox locked and does
processing on it.  Or perhaps if you run out of disk space.  It should
alos automatically repair itself when it can, but obviuosly this isn't
happening either.

Using Evolution 0.99.2, I get this error periodically when I select or

trash foler). 

Once this starts happening to a folder I can't expunge any messages from
it. The only workaround I've found is to delete the folder...quit
evolution, fire it up again and re-create the folder. (Recreating the
folder without first quitting the pp tells me the folder still exists). 

Can anyone tell me exactly what this error means, what causes it to
happen and/or what I can do to prevent it from happening?
