Can't delete from second imap mail window
I have one 3-pane window open on my inbox. I use "move to trash" deletion. I double-click on another folder on the same imap server to bring up another window, click on inbox back in the first window to go back there, collapse both of the folder panes, go to the second window, highlight a message or a group of messages and press delete. On stdout I see tree is valid and if I had multiple messages selected, the selection goes away; but nothing is deleted. Delete still works fine in the first window, pointing at my inbox.
This is working for me. Are you sure this isn't 24456 and it just hit you the first time in the new window? Does this happen on the first try if you do it again?
I don't understand bug 24456 well enough to say whether this is the same thing or not. 24456 seems to deal mostly with the last message in a folder, whereas what I'm seeing happens regardless of which message I try to delete. Other weirdnesses I'm seeing: 1. If I try to delete in this folder with the Delete key rather than clicking on delete, I get into a state where back in this browser window I can no longer type into the Additional Comments field (this is the third type I've started this reply, due to that problem). 2. I can still delete just fine in my Inbox back in the first window. 3. At some point, I closed the window, then opened another one on the folder and it turned out that some of the messages had in fact been deleted, even though it hadn't shown me that while I was doing the deletions. But I haven't been able to reproduce that; now I'm back to none of my deletes "taking". 4.. If I close the second window and load the problem folder back in the first window, now I can't delete there either. So this is tied to the folder, not to the window. 24456, or not?
I'm not sure about the Additional Comments field bug, but even though 24456 was reported on the last message I think that's just because he's always deleting from the bottom. I've reproduced the problem where after deleting between 0 and 50 times, delete no longer works, before I ever started coding multiple windows.
I see this even on the first delete after I've brought up the new window. Still, it wouldn't surprise me if they're the same bug, or at least closely related. The textarea bug may or may not be related, but let's not worry about it 'til the delete issues are fixed.
I think this still may be related to other deleting bugs. Hopefully if those ever get fixed, this will go away.

I'm marking WORKSFORME. Akkana, could you verify this. I think the delete bugs have been fixed for a while.

This seems to be working ok for me with jul6 commercial build linux rh6.0. I'm going to mark verified, since Akkana hasn't commented recently. We can always reopen if deemed necessary.
