Screen shot showing the empty folder names.
Description of problem:
Evolution shows bogus (IMAP) folders in the folder hierarchy with empty names.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not sure. They just showed up today. I attached a screenshot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start evolution.
Bogus folders in the hierarchy.
No bogus folders.
When I select one the bogus folders, evo gives no error message and shows no messages (obviously). The bogus folders do not exist in the Maildir store on the IMAP server.
If I go into the IMAP subscriptions and carefully uncheck and check the folders in the hierarchy again, the bogus folders disappear. As mentioned in another bug, I cannot deselect/select too quickly, or Evolution will crash.
I tried to edit my preferences to uncheck "only show subscribed folders", but that crashes evolution as well :-( (I'll file a separate bug for that).
The first issue, empty folders, seems to be this  upstream bug. Can I close this as an upstream?
About the crash I commented in bug #474520.
Yes, this seems to be the exact same thing as the upstream bug. AFAIAC you can close this bug. (And thanks for the comment on #474520.)
Thanks for the reply, closing as upstream then.
