[Bug 356366] Re: syncing to gmail corrupts inbox

I do have the ?corrupted .msf file, but I don't want to post a load of
personal emails to this site. Please let me know if it would help, and I
can make other arrangements.

am having trouble replicating (in my jaunty beta system)

i've set up a test folder, filled it with junk, and synced it over and
over while doing things - this informal stress test failed. I used the
following imapsync command:

imapsync --host1 host1 --user1 myusername \
    --host2 imap.gmail.com --user2 myusername at gmail.com \
    --ssl1 -ssl2 \
    --regextrans2 's/(.*)/test$1/' \

(with my passwords)

I found that the tail end of some emails was inserted into the beginning
of the following ones. In addition, the following content had lots of
escped characters, and other nonsense. The title of the email
corresponded to different content. Note that the imapsync script never
changes any gmail special folders, or the top level inbox.

guess I can't reproduce, but info here in case someone else does.
