(Whiteboard: Looks like a necko problem with large files...waiting for necko to confirm.)

Right now it looks like only one call to OnDataAvailable is being made to
nsParseMailbox and there's no Stop call.  Because it's happening in 1MB chunks,
the 1st 1MB worth of headers get parsed, but in my folder of 1000 messages which
takes up 7MB, most of the headers don't show up.

I believe this is a necko bug the more I think about it. They had some problems
with reading in large files and I remember a temporary work around being to set
the following buffer size:

NS_FILE_TRANSPORT_BUFFER_SIZE  (1024*1024)

My guess is, Scott's berkley mail folder is larger than this size and that's why
we can't read it out.

I've emailed rick potts and warren to get their open. I'll post it here. I'll
also try to find the necko bug for this problem and will mark this a dup of it
if that turns out to be the case.

We are going to get rid of the "necko" component for mail/news soon per mscott.
Target Milestone: M9

Re-assignng to warren. This bug is a manifestation of necko's problem
with really large files. Setting component to necko because this really is a
necko bug and not a mailnews networking problem.

Warren, this should be pretty easy to test without using messenger. The file
tests in netwerk should trigger the problem too if the file is big enough.
(mscott - do you want the product to be Browser rather than MailNews?  I thought
you wanted to get rid of the Necko component in the MailNews product.)
Product: MailNews → Browser
Yeah your right...the product should be browser..I'm setting that now.

Scott, I think I've got this fixed now. At least things are much happier when I
crank the file buffer size way down -- I assume the large mailbox size is the
converse problem. Let me know if it doesn't work.
Yes, this is working for me now.  Thanks for fixing this.
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
this is now working.
Bulk move of all Necko (to be deleted component) bugs to new Networking

component.
