Thanks for the report.
The issue here is that you have threading turned on, and I believe Evolution is
first organising the emails into trees based on mail threading, and then the
mails are sorted at each level of the tree according to date.

an earlier thread.
You can fix this by turning threading off with Ctrl-T.
If you have suggestions for improvements to the email view, they should be
reported to the authors of the program. Most upstream authors use a bug tracking
system like bugzilla, and more people who know the code will be looking at the
bug report there.
