While downloading mail (several hundred messages), it's often productive to look
at the Sent folder to see what topics I recently discussed. When I do this and
then switch back to the Inbox while downloading is in progress, the junk filter
starts filtering the mail immediately and removes some junk, but does not
process the rest of the mail after it's downloaded. The result is that I must
clear out the junk by hand. I'm not sure if this happens every time or just most
of the time.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a download of POP mail while showing the Inbox.
2. Switch to the Sent folder or another folder
3. Switch back to the Inbox folder

Actual Results:  
The junk filter starts while mail downloading is still proceeding. Some junk is
filtered, but the junk that's subsequently downloaded is not processed by the
junk filter and must be removed by hand.

Expected Results:  
The filter should not start filtering until the downloading is complete, no
matter what folders I look at.

reporter is gone.
jmc processing has changed such that this should be gone.
=> incomplete, can't verify with reporter.
