I don't filter much on that account, but yes, I'd expect whatever is
normal there.  In fact, on another machine, I see what you see.

I suppose the difference is due to the disk crash, but why things came
out as they did is certainly not clear to me.  If evo tries to clean up
folders when it starts or stops based on what's in the database and the
database is corrupted, that would explain things somewhat, I guess.
