  Execution of filter 'Junk check' fails with "Empty cache file"

Bug description:
  I currently use an Evolution setup in which I retrieve email via IMAP
  from an unfiltered mailbox, and then use Evolution to automatically
  filter for spam/junk mail.

  This process works as expected upon starting Evolution: all email is
  retrieved from the mailbox (and thus resides in the Inbox folder,
  where it arrived), then it's filtered to identify spam, and then the
  spam is moved from the Inbox to a Junk folder.

  However, after Evolution has been running for some time (hard to
  estimate because it requires an email to be received, but likely 5-10
  minutes; it's possible that this is just "one email refresh interval"
  but also possible that something else is going on), newly received
  email stops being filtered for spam, and all the email remains in the
  Inbox. This happens at least in the case of receiving one email at a
  time, and most likely in the case where multiple emails are received
  in one send/receive cycle.

  When this failure to remove spam/junk happens, there's a yellow banner
  at the top of the screen saying, for example (the filename is not
  always the same),

  "Error while performing operation.

  Execution of filter 'Junk check' failed: Empty cache file:

  I checked the contents of the file in question; it appears to be a
  copy of the email that was just received, including all headers. (It's
  possible that there's a race condition here and that the file was
  empty when the filter looked at it, but became populated just after it
  errored out, but perhaps something else is going on.)

  This behaviour is a problem because it means that either I have to
  delete junk mail by hand, or else that I have to repeatedly close and
  reopen Evolution so that the automated system will work.
