[SOLVED] MI2 4.4.18 Email Widget not populating

Mar 4, 2012
Today I updated my MI-2 from 3.12.20 to 4.4.18.

After the update, the email widget is no longer working.
I can add the widget but when I try to select the folder to be displayed in the widget, the folder select screen closes with no selection having been made.

I did a logcat but it was about 2.5MB in size, too much text to add here.

The problem has been reported by others here: http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/4-4-18.24140/page-2#post-205166
