I've no idea on the issue itself, but I'm wondering whether you can
reproduce this in gtk3-demo too. I'm asking, because the folder tree is
a descendant of the standard GtkTreeView, with no extra drawing, thus,
if it's not caused by something in evolution itself, which I doubt same
as you do, then the issue should be reproducible with gtk3-demo too. The
gtk3-demo executable is part of gtk3-devel. There is a tree view on its
main page, same as three tree view demos. Maybe this is related to a
fact that the table headers are hidden in evolution.
