Recreate it with the same name. The filter is still there, i.e. the
test portion is there, but there is no destination.

I have done this using web access to the account when there is no easy
way to otherwise empty the folder.

I think this is evidence that the filtration back end tracks folders
in suc a way that any modifications to the folders breaks the filter.

No it isn't. If it's evidence of anything, it's that the filter code
doesn't remember that you once had a folder with a specific name but
then removed it (using a procedure external to Evolution). I'm not
really surprised this doesn't work.

However the case of simply changing the name of a folder definitely does
work, i.e. the filters update automatically. I've done this lots of
times. What I haven't done is move a folder between accounts and see
what happens to the filters, which is what the OP is asking about.
