I ran the junk filtering on a very large amount of messages. Perhaps 1000 or so.
As it ran, it continued to eat up more and more memory, instead of doing a bit
first, then freeing memory, then a bit more. While I ran, the UI also said
"Done" but the status bar went wildly from empty to full green.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Select 1000 or so messages, run Tools / Run Junk Mail controls, notice it says
Done but is obviously doing something still
Actual Results:  
Just keeps saying Done, appears to eat up memory over time, doesn't give back
until process is over.

Expected Results:  
Say "Determining Junk Mail..." and do some garbage collection here and there to
minimize memory usage

I love the concept

Rob Hughes, is this bug still an issue for you with current builds of Mozilla 
(1.3 Final or 1.4)?

The behavior is still strange with 1.4 RC3. I am running junk mail controls on
my whole in-box of 6111 at the moment and the little green status bar keeps
starting and stopping, and doesn't give a clear indication of where we are at.
Although, it no longer says "Done". Why not give a count of where it's at going
through the selected messages "...processing 341 of 6111"

I can't believe someone removed the Tools/Mark Selected Messages as Junk. Now I
have to do it manually per message? God help me.

"I can't believe someone removed the Tools/Mark Selected Messages as Junk."
Ah, I can just hit the "Junk" button and that works. However, my comment about
the strange GUI behaviour for running large Junk Mail checks still stands.
