[Evolution] Evo 2.24.3 bug list, by personal priority.

Hi all,

A few weeks ago, I read how on this list how someone (maybe poc?) used
to post their list of Evolution bugs that annoyed them, with their bug
numbers / bugzilla links.

Having just upgraded to Evolution 2.24.3, and having tested where
possible to confirm that bugs I'm watching are still present, I thought
it may be worth repeating this for bugs that annoy me.

To break it down into manageable chunks, I've categorised the Evolution
bugs by personal priority level. P1 would be things that
annoy/grate/cause-data-loss at least once a week or usually once a day
or more; P2 would be things that annoy but not as strongly as P1, or
where it feels like some very useful functionality is missing; there is
no P3; P4 are minor annoyances; and P5 are wishlist things that I'd like
to see in Evo (either because they'd improve usability, or be
strategically important for encouraging uptake, like the PST importing

A few items have comments in square brackets, about current status /
things I need to check / things that require community feedback / etc.

Your comments, including agreements of support from people also
affected / disagreements against where something seems like a bad idea,
links to dupes, etc, are all welcome.
