I'm seeing the same behvaviour. For what it's worth, the gnome bug report
mentions a workaround: toggling between offline and online mode may help in
gettting to see the subfolders again. But evolution may fail in new, mysterious
ways as well....

(In reply to comment #1)
The "workaround" works for me as well but... probably not how the functional
requirements were written.
Comment 4 Sam Sharpe 2006-11-03 09:47:12 EST
The workaround does not work for me :o(

I've just rolled my own RPM (heh, by patching the source tarball not doing it
properly because it's a Friday afternoon) with the debian patch above applied,
and my folders came back... Go Me!
Comment 7 Frank Pineau 2006-11-08 15:19:32 EST
Patch did not work for me. :(

The workaround doesn't work for me :(
Please make new rpms.

Thank you.
Comment 11 bastiaan 2006-11-10 11:00:00 EST
for those having trouble to get the workaround working: like most features in
Evolution it appears to have a race condition :-( 
To win the race, in my experience the following works best:
open evolution
switch to offline
close evolution
reopen evolution
hopefully see your subfolders
switch back to online

hope this helps. Of course fixing the bug would be better...

Comment 12 Valent Turkovic 2006-11-13 02:26:04 EST
This still didn't do it for me.
Comment 13 Valent Turkovic 2006-11-13 02:52:33 EST
I have installed Evolution-2.8.1.1 and the bug is still present.

Can you please confirm that 2.8.1.1 solves this bug?
Comment 14 Bojan Smojver 2006-11-13 05:25:00 EST
Regarding comment #13, this is the version of Evolution against which the bugs
has been originally reported. So, it doesn't include the fix.

evolution-data-server SPEC file patch to include evolution-exchange-restore-folders.patch
Comment 17 Ryan Ordway 2006-11-16 18:34:51 EST
I was experiencing this same issue with:

evolution-2.8.1.1-3.fc6
evolution-devel-2.8.1.1-3.fc6
evolution-webcal-2.7.1-6
evolution-data-server-devel-1.8.1-1
beagle-evolution-0.2.10-6.fc6
evolution-connector-2.8.1-1.fc6
evolution-data-server-1.8.1-1
evolution-sharp-0.11.1-10.fc6

I downloaded the latest SRPM for evolution-data-server,
evolution-data-server-1.8.1-1.fc6.src.rpm, applied the patch from comment #5
above, and updated the spec file as in the patch from comment #16 above. This
resolved the issue for me. 

If you need RPMs to fix this before an official update is released, I've put my
RPMs up here:

http://vodka.library.oregonstate.edu/files/evolution-data-server-1.8.1-2.i386.rpm
http://vodka.library.oregonstate.edu/files/evolution-data-server-devel-1.8.1-2.i386.rpm


Comment 18 Matthew Barnes 2006-11-16 20:18:53 EST
Thanks for the patch!  This should land in Fedora Updates Testing shortly.

evolution-data-server-1.8.1-2.fc6
Comment 19 Earl Pomeroy 2006-11-18 02:21:34 EST
I installed the evolution-data-server-1.8.1-2.fc6 from Fedora Updates Testing
this morning and it resolves the issue for me. All of my sub-folders are back.
Comment 20 Valent Turkovic 2006-11-19 08:53:39 EST
The solution for me is to use Evolution 2.8 - version that shipped with Fedora
Core 6, because that one works great. Don't upgrade to 2.8.1 of 2.8.1.1
Comment 21 Bojan Smojver 2006-11-19 15:09:00 EST
evolution-data-server-1.8.1-2.fc6 (from testing) fixes the problem here.
Comment 22 James Juran 2006-11-20 08:32:14 EST
evolution-data-server-1.8.1-2.fc6 from testing works for me too.  Thanks!
Comment 23 Stefan Becker 2006-11-28 07:52:42 EST
Just updated to evolution-data-server-1.8.1-2.fc6 from updates. I can definitely
see subfolders now...

As an additional benefit calendar alerts seem to work now too :-)
