[Evolution] Really super terribly awful slow performance "Generating message list"

Does anyone know why Evolution spends all of its time "Generating
message list"?

When I click on any folder to read it, it generates a message list.

When I move a message to a different folder it generates a message list.

When I double click on a message in a folder that is not using the
Preview pane, it generates a message list.

This operation appears to consume up to 30 seconds of CPU time each and
every time it runs. It's hell on laptop battery life using 30 seconds of
speed boost every couple of minutes.

Yes, I have over 30,000 messages in the inbox. No, this should not cause
any problem to a serious email program. mutt has no problem. Thunderbird
has no problem. Now, Mail.app does have a problem but I don't consider
it a serious email app.

Evolution *used to* perform acceptably well, back in the 2.something
versions when I used to run a Linux laptop in 2006. Now that I'm running
the 3.0 version in Fedora 15 it appears to have turned to crap. What

So, am I doing something wrong, or have the Evolution developers
forgotten the basics of O(n) data structure analysis.
