Evolution (evolution-2.26.3-1.fc11.x86_64 running under Fedora-11) is

clearing out the the 1579 deleted messages in my Junk folder for the
past hour.  The status (bottom) line has been displaying:
  Updating Search Folders for 'On This Computer:/phred' (...)
during this whole time.  All data is local to my computer; no external

Has anyone else seen this or a similar problem?  Any ideas what's going

Have you tried vacuuming the database?

        cd ~/.evolution/mail/
        for i in `find . -name folders.db`
                echo "Rebuilding Table $i"
                sqlite3 $i "vacuum;"

Credit where credit is due: it's not my recipe. I got it from Srini, who
