[Evolution] Bug#520771: evolution: Evolution hangs ater being idle for a few hours

Package: evolution-data-server
Version: 2.24.5-2
Severity: important

After being idle for a few hours, no mails are displayed any longer, either
local mbox mails or imap mails. When clicking on a mail (either preview 
or double-clicking) the display says formatting message and then evolution 
hangs! Obviously this is due to updating the folders.db. The whole application 
has to be restarted!! Maybe this bug report should have been allocated 
to evolution-data-server, not evolution. I'm now changing to that 

This bug was reported to gnome as
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=575996 and found to be a duplicate 
of  #568332. It is  now resolved by a patch from March 11. However, to 
me it is unknovn if it was checked in to 2.24.5 or to later versions. 
BTW 2.26 is out, and the bug is definitely fixed threre.
