I still don't get what exactly gets corrupted.  It sounds like lines
starting or containing "From" get changed, either quoted or unquoted, is
that it?

Assuming the above, I am downgrading this to important, as it does not
seem to be a major use-case for evolution which warrants its exclusion
in wheezy.  If you have a patch for it, I guess it should still be
applied though.

Or is evolution throwing away the whole mail or even mbox?
