The evo index workaround dance:

- Terminate evolution, forcefully if necessary (evolution
--force-shutdown, or killall evolution, or xkill, or ...)

- Start evolution offline: evolution --offline

- Exit evolution. It may take a while to store folders, depending on how
big the dirty (changed) ones are.

- Restart evolution. Exit it again. You can skip this step, sometimes.

- Restart evolution. When it's stopped doing the startup dance, put it
back online (icon in the lower-left, or File > Work Online).

Annoying, but it works -- even with the "Folder and summary mismatch,
even after a sync" error dialog.
