[Evolution] Bug#646904: evolution: creates MH folders, but needs restart to update folder list

Package: evolution
Version: 3.0.3-2

When I create a folder in a MH style mail account, Evo creates the
corresponding directory on disk, but it doesn't update the folder
list. The new folder is shown only after a restart of Evolution.

A related problem: The error message if you try to create a folder
the second time is misleading:

Fehler bei »Ordner »tester« wird angelegt«.
Ordner konnte nicht abgerufen werden: /home/mbelow/Mail///tester:

Translates to:

Error in »Folder »tester« is being created«.
Folder couldn't be found: /home/mbelow/Mail///tester: success

What Evo tries to say is: there is a problem because the folder
already exists (even if I'm not showing it to you). This should be
put more clearly, maybe:

"Folder already exists. Restart Evolution to use it."

Thanks for your efforts
