Fw: [Evolution] Irregularities in mail folder format conversion

Since nobody has seconded this issue, I thought I'd submit it again.
Somebody have any idea?

Subject: [Evolution] Irregularities in mail folder format conversion

I noticed this bug which I was able to reproduce over and over again:

1. Convert a folder, any folder, from the default mbox format to maildir.
2. Switch to another folder (e.g. Inbox). Immediately there is an error
Error while 'Synchronizing 'mbox'':
Cannot create folder lock on
/home/ibukun/evolution/local/Inbox/subfolders/foldername//mbox: Is a

3. Try to copy a message to the newly created folder. A similar error
appears (cannot create folder lock: is a directory).

Quite evidently evolution seems to have forgotten that the folder has
been converted to maildir and is still trying to read it as mbox. This
problem can only be solved by restarting evolution.
