User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040322 Firefox/0.8.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5+ (20040322)

When an IMAP message is deleted, it disappears from the message list pane as
expected. However, after selecting another IMAP folder and then returning to the
original folder, the deleted message reappears. Eventually, when Thunderbird
gets around to checking the folder for new messages, the ghost message
disappears again.

This is especially problematic when the mail in question was deleted while still
marked unread -- when the "unread" ghost messages reappear, Thunderbird treats
them as new incoming mail, complete with the new mail notification and tray icon.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send yourself an email (or wait for one to arrive).
2. Delete the new message from your inbox.
3. Select another IMAP folder.
4. Select the inbox.

Actual Results:  
The deleted message reappeared in the inbox.

Expected Results:  
The deleted message should not have reappeared.

In case this turns out to be server-related, the IMAP server in question is
running IceWarp Merak Mail Server v5.9.4.
