The "Old Mail" heading when the message Group By feature is repeated. The
occured when I deleted mail from the "Two weeks ago"  heading but still had more
and less recent mail.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch into Group mode View -> Sort By -> Group by Sort
2. Have mail messages that are 2 months, 2 weeks, 1 week and 1 day old
3. Delete the message that's two weeks old



Actual Results:  
The heading "Old Mail" now repeats and contains the same content in both sections.

Expected Results:  
Each Group By heading should appear at most once, but not all all if it has zero
messages.

I believe I am seeing this bug as well, but have not been able to reproduce it
consistently.

I, too, am using the Sorty by Date and Group by Sort view, and while deleting
messages, the "Today" heading will sometimes change to "Old Mail."  In other
words, I'll have "Old Mail," "Yesterday," "Last Week," "Two Weeks Ago," and then
"Old Mail" repeated.

This appears strictly cosmetic, since the actual mail from today is still group
correctly, the label is just incorrect.
