evolution doesn't empty trash on exit


I have the preference set to 'empty trash folders on exit, every time'. But they don't get emptied.

Hi:

I don't use evolution but this Solved thread looks like a place to start.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=974536

Are you getting any kind of an error message?

Thanks
I read through that and it is a different problem. I did try deleting the folders.db file like they suggested, but
that didn't help.
I do get some error msgs in the log file.

Code:
===========
DB SQL operation [BEGIN] started
Camel SQL Exec:
BEGIN
Camel SQL Exec:
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS Deletes (id INTEGER primary key AUTOINCREMENT not null, uid TEXT, time TEXT, mailbox TEXT)
Camel SQL Exec:
INSERT OR REPLACE INTO Deletes (uid, mailbox, time) SELECT uid, '.#evolution/Trash', strftime("%s", 'now') FROM '.#evolution/Trash'
Error in SQL EXEC statement: INSERT OR REPLACE INTO Deletes (uid, mailbox, time) SELECT uid, '.#evolution/Trash', strftime("%s", 'now') FROM '.#evolution/Trash' [no such table: .#evolution/Trash].
Camel SQL Exec:
DELETE FROM folders WHERE folder_name = '.#evolution/Trash'
Camel SQL Exec:
DROP TABLE '.#evolution/Trash' 
Error in SQL EXEC statement: DROP TABLE '.#evolution/Trash'  [no such table: .#evolution/Trash].
Camel SQL Exec:
DROP TABLE '.#evolution/Trash_bodystructure' 
Error in SQL EXEC statement: DROP TABLE '.#evolution/Trash_bodystructure'  [no such table: .#evolution/Trash_bodystructure].
Camel SQL Exec:
COMMIT
DB Operation ended. Time Taken : 0.000264
I'll open a bug report

There are several threads on this page that are the same or very close to the Error your getting-

Code:
Error in SQL EXEC statement: DROP TABLE '.#evolution/Trash_bodystructure'  [no such table: .#evolution/Trash_bodystructure].
Camel SQL Exec:
