The genetic stability of Ebola virus

If the Ebola virus' polymerase is attempting to preserve its genome over
time, what does that say for the natural selection forces that may act
upon Ebola?  I am curious about the evolution of other filoviruses and how
they compare to Ebola.  
Aside from this question, has a natural reservior or "jump" vector for
Ebola been discovered yet?
