Bug Description

Evolution seems to have a file handle leak. After running for a day or so (with some time suspended) it raises an error:
"Cannot open maildir directory path: /home/chris/.local/share/evolution/mail/local/.: Too many open files". This happens consistently given sufficient time, although I've not pinned down the minimum time it takes.

After this message occurs, Evolution is ususable. Any attempt to access mail results in a "Cannot access database" error.
