If you expunge just before quitting Evo, then as far as explicit deletes
go you're OK. However the backend still keeps filtering new mail, and
every filter rule which refiles messages in folders is actually copying
them and deleting the original, so we're back where we started.

This drove me crazy till I figured it out :-)

Okay, I'd forgotten that the OP had asked (originally!) about filters
(rather than just about (manually) deleting an email).

So, you're saying the filters run even when Evolution closes? When I
quit evolution (CNTL Q - safer than X on title bar IMHO) then I have

(although evolution-data-server-1.6 was there for the initial second
after close down).

None of these would do this "background" filtering. I've never noticed
any filtering going on after I've closed Evo. By "backend" I presume you
do mean some Evo-related process on the users' machine?
