I have several mail filters set up, that moves email into sub-folders of Inbox.
When I do a Get Messages, mail is read from the Pop3 server, and email that
matches regexp's in the filters are moved to their associated sub-folders. Mail
that DOESN'T match any filters, which should go to 'Inbox', do not. Given that
my email account is called '', I'll see
' (8)' (assuming there are 8 messages which should have
gone to Inbox). To get these messages to appear, I have to completely exit all
Mozilla windows, re-run, and do a Get Messages. The messages appear in the Inbox

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Nothing Special
2.Get Msgs
3.Note that some messages don't appear in Inbox.
4.Exit Mozilla
5.Restart Moz, do another Get Msgs
6.Messages appear

Actual Results:  
Email appears for the Inbox

Expected Results:  
One Get Msgs is all that was needed. Shouldn't have to exit Moz, either. New
aberrant behavior in 1.3.a.

I have a "junk" filter, which moves junk email to a sub-folder called 'junk'.

I'm going to have to rate the severity major because the solution/work-around
isn't immediately obvious to everyone. It looks like it munged the incoming email.
Reporter, Could you please retest this with a more current version either the
latest (stable) milestone or a recent nightly build ?
