User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/39.0.2171.95 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create and save message filter applied to IMAP (gmail) account Inbox that moves selected messages to a Local Folder.
2. Select Run Now on same account.


Actual results:

Moved messages are empty and original messages are deleted from IMAP account. Message Source for each empty message shows only the time stamp of move and these X-Mozilla field values:
From - Wed Dec 03 12:47:19 2014
X-Mozilla-Status: 0001
X-Mozilla-Status2: 00000000
X-Mozilla-Keys:  


Expected results:

Copy of message should match original, before original is deleted.

Note: Manual moves (drag & drop or menu-driven) work correctly. Filter works fine on new incoming messages.

(dhowerver's comment) I just tried the same steps again, running a new filter to move three messages from gmail IMAP to a new Local Folder at the root level. It did move the messages as I would expect, which is better. However, it also created three new unread empty messages with a current timestamp in the same folder.

I tried running the same filter a couple more times after adjusting the filter criteria for different Subject or From values. It copies the correct content first, then generates a duplicate new empty unread message for each copied entry, so my destination folder now has 78 messages with 39 unread. 

My TB version is 31.7.0.
