Angry Evolution: Can't Empty Trash; Summary and Folder Mismatch

Hi, Folks,

I'm running Evolution 2.0.1 on SuSE 9.2 Pro (basically, the version 9.2 came with). I recently updated to 9.2, and after a particular patch had a kernel panic (oh joy). After running the fix procedures from the SuSE site, I have discovered this little problem with Evolution.

Everytime I attempt to empty the trash, I get an error --

Error while Expunging folder.
Error storing `~/.evolution/mail/local/class/Virtual Classroom (mbox)': Summary and folder mismatch, even after a sync.

Obviously, something somewhere is munged.

Evolution is also showing some other anomalies: Every time I move an email, it also copies it into the Trash folder (which is getting pretty full).

Does anyone have any idea where I may start to fix this issue?

Thanks in advance!
