Turns out the offending message was on a POP server.  It was happening
when I tried to pop a message off of a server and stick it onto my IMAP
server (which happens through a filter).  I logged into the web access
to my pop account, deleted the top message, and evolution was able to
pop the rest*.


* It happened once again with a different message, so I repeated the
procedure and it hasn't happened since.  Still, it seems that evolution
should be more robust in face of this kind of error -- I couldn't get
any of my other mail off of the POP server until I manually rectified
the problem.

Well the error is with the server.  I think it is quite reasonable for the code to assume that if one append fails, another wont work either.
