Well, I did read your mail. Don't have answers, though.

The Debian evo maintainer seems very busy - the bug list suffers from
bad maintenance (like some very old bugs that are not closed (or at
least tagged woody). Also, when I offered to go through the bugs, I got
no answer (that was last year, so it wasn't because I'm just impatient).

New evolution releases still make it into unstable, so he's not MIA.

I don't use local accounts. I don't use evo's filters, I filter on the
(IMAP) server.

I hate that summary page --> I never look at it. Being outlookish in
terms of non-modularity is the worst feature of evo - why can I start
just the evo mailer and the addressbook, I don't use the scheduler or
todo modules...

This is most certainly a gnome/gtk problem. Currently, I'm using gnome2,
so my gnome1 settings can't be changed. Also, I use a unicode locale,
but my gtk/gnome1 theme is not unicode ready, so I start all gnome1 apps
through a LC_CTYPE=de_CH wrapper script... 

Won't solve your problem, I guess, sorry.
