BTW I still have not found out what Evo did to an entire Inbox of
several hundred messages, 23 of them unread, that just disappeared
yesterday. I'm beginning to wonder if I should be using it at all at
this rate.

Try this:

        Stop Evo.
        Remove index files.


Okay, Patrick, here are the files in question:

You can remove anything with an extension except for .sbd (which is
itself a directory). Evo will recreate what it needs.

If you're nervous, make a copy of everything first. Remember to stop Evo
with --force-shutdown before doing anything.

I believe, based on the above size numbers, that the location of the
missing messages is the "subsidiary", which BTW Evo created
without my asking it to when it was hijacking the move icon 
off & on all day Wednesday,

You may have inadvertently created an additional folder. In any case,
clean up the indices (in both directories) before reorganizing.
