Steps to reproduce:

I was running thunderbird while running AVG in the background. recently thunderbird has been sluggish, and holding typing in the buffer when making a message. It was attempting to compact more often (often), and also emails on display would drop out of the adjoining display window each time it went to compact, leaving a white screen. 
sometimes TB worked fine.  overall pretty sluggish. 

Actual results:

the inbox may have reached 1000 emails. a message flashed that the inbox was full, and then the inbox was empty. The mail was not in the trash or in another folder inside of the TB profile folders. 
the inbox is reset, and the sluggishness is still there. it is trying to compact 20 emails. 
research on the web showed that this has happened elsewhere, and it might be tied to the antivirus, but I am not sure.

Expected results:

maybe it should have told me it was going to dump all that information from the last 6 years?

Do AVG logs indicate AVG delete the messages?

log deleted with AVG update for 2013.
The scan did not indicate that anything was found or moved.

Does Thunderbird automatically archive or delete an inbox above a certain size?
