Re: Fw: [Evolution] Irregularities in mail folder format conversion

I have seen the same problem and a mail-crash on top!
Just submitted a bug-report about that, since the conversion is NOT
very stable and an end-user is maybe in some way over-stressed by
the fact that he/she have to delete all its mbox.ibex files
to get evolution to run again.
I think one and maybe the one problem is handling of those ibex-files
after conversion and that confuses evo if it find some corrupted files.
Maybe evo should go to some protected state in 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.
