Re: Evolution crash on email search.

Sometimes the .cmeta file associated with a folder gets trashed.  If
the .cmeta file is removed, evo will regenerate a new one on start up.

Try this:

* cd to ~/.evolution/mail/local
* locate the errant .cmeta file and move it to /tmp [just in case]
* run 'pkill evo' to kill off any lagging evo processes
* start evo
