I have not seen this before M13, and I try to use mozilla as much as I can...
but there may have been other contributing factors.

The PHP3 mailing list digest (a digest of a mailing list that generates ~200
emails a day...) sent me a 172k MIME multipart email (with over 100
attachements). Each message should show up as an attachment to parent email. I
ended up with the last 10 lines or so of the last attachment flowing into the
top of the next email on the list.

Using UW imap 4.1(something).

I don't quite understand the problem here. Can you forward to me (as an 
attachment) the message that has this problem.

This seems to work like it should for me. What I am seeing is the original 
message followed by lots and lots of email messages separated by HR's. Then, 
after it is rendered full (which takes a bit), the attachment menu has 190 
attachments in the list. You do know that if we can display the attachements 
inline, we will do that so you will have the long list displayed after the 
original message.

Now the attachment menu isn't 100% correct since you can't get to all the 
attachments, but that is another bug.

The problem comes not in this email, but at the top of the very next email, I 
see the last 5 lines of my multipart email before the content of the current 
email...does that make sense? Can we reopen this?

It sort of makes sense but a screenshot would help. In either case, I still 
don't see that behavior.

Can you try deleting the .MSF files in your mail directory and try it again. I 
am curious if this is an offset type of problem in the indexes?

Interesting.  Phil had a bug on this recently filed by a different person, I 
think. I'll have to find it.

Sorry for the long delay...I wanted to build some really good test cases,
 and got sidetracked.

I no longer see this bug after deleting the cache files. I'm marking it as
