excessive CPU, Memory and hard disk usage

Bug Description

Since a couple of days, when I start evolution it slows down my laptop. Evolution itself becomes un-responsive, and so are all the open applications. By using both 'top' and 'ps' I noticed that evolution uses up to 18% CPU and about 70% of memory. In addition, the hard-disk stars working intensively. Killing evolution restores the laptop to its ususal responsiveness.

I just noticed that by expanding the folder "Templates"(in the folder list tree) there was a folder with same strange characters. I removed it, and now evolution is fast as it was used to be.

I have no idea about the creation of the Template folder..
