I have many thousands of messages in mailing lists in IMAP, too, so that's
hardly the point.  You posted _this_ bug report, but you still haven't
posted a link to the one you say you found at bugs.kde - I'd like to check
it out and see if it's possible to duplicate.  As far as I can tell it
isn't likely to get solved as there doesn't appear to be any good indicator
of what's causing your problem.

It might as well be considered _totally_ unusable.  This bug has been
outstanding for 3 (?) releases, and the developers keep telling us they
_have_ a solution, they just haven't implemented it.

There seems to be, but I'm skeptical :-(
