unable to filter with 'date received before 1 month ago'

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Error while Filtering Selected Messages.

Error executing filter search: Unexpected token encountered: 45: (and

       (match-all (< (get-received-date) (- (get-current-date) 7257600)))


This happens when I have a filter that moves items that have Date Received before 1 month ago. These filters worked a week ago, and no longer work. Probably a recent regression of some sort.

Marking this critical because it makes a widely used function that worked fine no longer work fine. Releasing Evolution with this bug, at least in my opinion, would not be acceptable.

Upstream claims the bug is fixed in the development version. Might be worth backporting.

We will not start backporting SVN changes the day of a new tarball, maybe you should use a stable distribution if you can't handle some breakages on the way
