it "spins" means the barber poll spins and I see the status message "Building summary file for <foldername>..." to reproduce, create an empty file on disk under your pop mail local mail folder. start up 5.0. select that file in the folder pane. in the debugger I'm seeing the nsMsgMailboxParser::OnStartRequest() but never the nsMsgMailboxParser::OnStopRequest().
jfd mentioned this to putterman yesterday - jfd was seeing this on the Mac so I'll cc him as a fyi.

I just realized this is surely a dup of #13043 where necko is hanging when trying to load files of size 0 bytes. Actually hanging is the wrong word...we're running into a deadlock situation. This isn't actually a mailnews bug at all. If you load a file url with 0 bytes you'll see the same problem. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 13043 ***
