I get bombarded by spam all the time, and sometimes when 50 or more spam messages
download from the server, especially after a few days of not checking mail. I have
noticed that the junk mail filter, misses messages it has previously sent to the
junk bin

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download lots of messages, after training your junk mail filter, and it will
miss some when checking high quantitys

Actual Results:  
usually about 5 or 6 known spam messages escape the filter, and have to be remarked

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should not really care how many messages are new in the inbox
