I don't see slowness. Quite the contrary in fact, as the new code is
faster at searching than the old. I could live with some initial
slowness as Evo re-indexed a large message store, but I would expect
that to be a once-only thing on first startup. Note that I'm not an Evo
devel, I'm just guessing here.

If the slowness persists, I would suggest 1) emptying trash and then 2)
removing index files to force Evo to rebuild them.
