I regularly see this also, in fact KMail told me just now I had 6 mail 
from CNET in a subfolder. On opening the folder there were 6 mail - but 
as I watched they became 3... I had 2 copies of 3 mail in other words 
until I actually opened the folder in question, then they "shrunk" to 1 
copy each of the 3 mails

Using KDEPIM 4.10.5 on Kubuntu 12.10 (not for this list though, here I 
use Thunderbird actually)

kind regards,
