It seemed to be mail messages with attachments, but with further analysis, any 
message that contains a null in the message subject gets this message.  the 
error window doesn't tell which message has the problem or how many were 
succesfuly moved before the "bad" message.

by the way, to the naked eye, the message subject looks just like any other 
message.  there is no visible null.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: the folder containing the "bad" message and drag the message into an IMAP folder and error and quitely sob.

Actual Results:  
I only felt a little depressed.  didn't acutally sob.

Expected Results:  
move the message into the IMAP folder without an error.  It does fine with 
others.  just not with message containing a null in teh subject line.

what's the error message? It's probably coming from the imap server.
