removing ~/.evolution/mail/local/folders.db seems to have done it.

Btw, What does 'evolution --force-shutdown' do that simply exiting
from Evolution does not do?

It kills evolution-data-server, plus it forces Evo itself to exit even
when it doesn't want to (Evo can hang for a long time trying to quit
because it's trying to update folder status on a slow remote server).
This can mean that e.g. some read or deleted or moved messages don't
show as read or deleted or moved next time you start Evo. It shouldn't
ever lose mail however.
