[Evolution] Bug#434911: evolution: folder selection pop-up window has move disabled

Package: evolution
Version: 2.10.2-1
Severity: normal

When I right click on a message (or group of messages) and select
"Move to Folder" a pop-up window comes up allowing me to select a

Sometimes the "Move" button at the bottom of the pop-up is greyed
out.  Neither clicking on it nor double-clicking on folder in the
upper display move the messages to the folder.  Double-clicking on a
folder does cause the pop-up window to close.  The cancel button is
not greyed out, and works normally.  Expanding and collapsing folders
and scrolling the list all work in the upper pane of the pop-up.

Every time I have tried the same thing a second time it has succeeded:
the move button is active when the window pops up on my follow up
request.  Clicking either it or the target folder moves the messages.

I saw this behavior with the previous testing version (2.6?) as well.
