Expected results:
Should give you a file list.

This is happening on the Sony Vio laptop that Desktop QA has. Not sure if it
happens anywhere else, nor if it would happen if I reinstalled again on this system.

Typing in the file location is sufficient to get around this problem, incidentally.

Also, in checking to see if it was repeatable after I logged out and back in
again, I notice that I had to kill X in order to log out. It was not shutting
down cleanly. I wonder if this problem relates, somehow.

(logging out and back in didn't fix the problem, incidentally. A reboot did,
though, so I suspect a deeper problem. Somewhere. IIRC, Nautilus died at some
point before I played with Evo and before the reboot, which may relate. This
also means it's no longer reproducable)

Evolution 2.0.2 is only being updated for security issues.  Closing as WONTFIX.
