After downloading emails, if _it stays_ in the Inbox folder, then after a few
minutes some (but not all) emails gets corrupted. Somehow some mail's headers,
or its body gets overwritten with dots, and after that, mozilla can not display
the mail correctly. This happens only with mozilla mail client, and only if the
mail stays in the Inbox folder. If some filter moves the message to another
folder, then it is "safe". With mc I can see this in the
~/.mozilla/user/xxxxx.slt/Mail/server/Inbox file:
"Received: from taelon.prim.hu (taelon.primserv [10.1.1.4])
        by jam.adver................................." and here are lots of dots.
Or another example:
"Received: from cdm-68-226-201-44.nwib.cox-internet.com (68.226.201.44)
[68.226.201..................." lots of dots too.

Sometimes just the body disappears, and the header stays in the emails. I have
checked if this is a hard drive problem, and copied my mozilla home to another
drive. But the problem still exists. I think this is very serious, cause I can
not read my mails correctly, because this problem happens at random.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download mails in to the Inbox folder.
2. Wait some time.
3. Cry...

Actual Results:  
At random, mails gets corrupted, and gets unreadable, because either the body or
the headers gets overwritten by something.

Expected Results:  
Store my emails safely!
