Is it me, or is Evolution buggy?

I've been running Evolution as my daily driver since 2002 when Ximian
was maintaining it. For what it is, I have been very happy, until
installing which is the current version shipping with openSuse 11.3.

I do confess to having several thousand items in my "Inbox" and a couple
of thousand items in my "Sent" folder. This has not been a problem until
version Since installing this version, I have been having
daily crashes where Evolution disappears. This usually occurs in the
middle of checking mail on servers. In addition, I have been gotten the
"Summary and folder mismatch" error message several times, after which
I've deleted .cmeta, .ibex, and .ev-summary folders
from /home/user/.evolution/mail/local. This worked on previous versions
of Evolution, however with I have discovered that one half to
nearly all of the contents of my inbox and sent items folder disappears
as a result of this or possibly another unrelated error. I have done this several times, recreating the inbox and sent items from backups.

I think I need to upgrade to the current stable version if I am going to keep my sanity. But how? I can see Evolution 2.32 in the 64-bit repository here:
and I've successfully added this site to my YAST repository, but I'm not seeing 2.32 in YAST. What am I missing?
TIA for suffering my bout of noobidity.
