I have been using 2.8.0 with IMAP on Mandriva 2007 for about 6 months.
Two days ago, it started giving a problem after using evo for about
10-15 minutes.  The messages would not show and sometimes I would get a
"too many open files" message where the e-mail should be.

By disabling my IMAP account, the problem went away.

Is there a fix for this?

It sounds like you might be encountering bug #348888 [1], which was
fixed last fall in 2.9.  Unfortunately it was never backported to 2.8
because the solution required breaking ABI in evolution-data-server.

If you can't upgrade to Evolution 2.10, you can somewhat work around the
problem by writing a little shell script that first increases your
maximum file descriptor limit and then runs evolution:

    su -c "ulimit -n 10000; su $LOGNAME -c 'evolution'"

Hope this helps,
