When I'm receiving emails and deleting them simultaneously, it will likely corrupt the folder. This is reproducible in around 9 of 10 cases. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. press Get Mail 2. switch to the message list 3. start deleting unwanted messages. Actual Results: folder is corrupted -- doubled messages, messages with empty subject are listed in the list, invalid date etc. Repair Folder cures that.
jiri, are you doing this in Unified Folders Inbox?
(In reply to comment #1) > jiri, are you doing this in Unified Folders Inbox? Nope, separate inboxes for each email account. Happened today with 6.0.
What size are your folders on disk ?
(In reply to Ludovic Hirlimann [:Usul] from comment #3) > What size are your folders on disk ? What exactly do you mean? For example output of du -sh ~/.thunderbird/*.default/Mail/*? Or disk cache in advanced setting? That one is set to 1024M.

Not reaching or 2 or 4 GB limit. Repairing helps. Did you try to compact the inbox to see if that would help solving the issue ?

It does not help. The issue occurs when I'm *in* the folder. The more activity I do during receive of messages, the more likely the issue occurs. It looks like a race condition. E.g. marking messages as read, deleting them and so on while receiving to the same folder is a killer. It occurs every time.
And I'm now at 12 beta and it still happens...
I'm running out of ideas here ?
