"evolution" process shows a large and growing number of file descriptors open on a small 
number of "folders.db" files; once there are over 255 open file descriptors (the default 
limit) new operations seeking to open a file descriptor fail and evolution stops working.

Whenever you click a folder, the folders.db will be opened once. So if you run Evolution for a while, you will find dozens of file handles of folders.db. Is this a bug? or is it expected
behavior? In Solairs, the default open file limit is 256, while in Linux is 
1024, so the error
is easily produced in Solaris.

Can Evolution share the same file handle to folders.db? or can the handle be 
closed if you
switch to a new folder?
