That bug changed TB value unit to MB from KB.

As this impacts strings, SM should do it before 2.1b3, if we want to sync' (in 2.1 cycle).

So they didn't turn on autocompact just yet, which is good (see below). I don't see any problem with porting the first (prefs/UI) part and removing the ifdefs, though. Karsten?

The reason why I have a problem with autocompacting (and the reason why I turned it off for me eventually after I had it activated for quite some time) is that it seems to throw away the current view, leaving you with an empty thread pane (at least that's what I recall from memory using SM 2.0; I neither checked SM trunk nor Shredder yet). Actually that happens whenever you compact a folder you're currently viewing, but with autocompacting it happens out of the blue (for anyone who doesn't know that it's due to compacting that is, but that's probably the majority of users).
Will ask bienvenu for sr once we have an r+.

Ftr, iiuc, they did turn autocompact (prompt) on with their (shared) second patch.
