ActiveSync isn't handling delete/move operations correctly, so we end up with duplicates (one from the local op, and one from the remote op). We need to fix this.

I have a fix in-progress on my unit test branch, but I want to flesh out the tests a bit more before I put it up for review: https://github.com/mozsquib/gaia-email-libs-and-more/tree/as-unit-tests

Issue reproduces in build 20130112070202 for Unagi 

Edit options are blocking after the attempt to delete message from Trash folder, 
User is no longer able to move, delete, flag or mark read/unread - status message confirms the actions but nothing is going on with the messages

## STR
have a few msgs on your Hotmail account

1. Add Hotmail account on device (enter credentials ==> tap Next ==> tap Continue to Mail) 
2. From Inbox folder select unread msg => back to Inbox, msg shown as read
3. Select Edit 
4. Select a msg to Flag => back to Inbox, msg shown as flagged
5. Select Edit
6. Select a msg to Move to Trash => status message confirms msg moved to Trash and msg disappears from Inbox
7. Go to Trash folder
8. Select Edit
9. Select a msg to Delete ==> ACTUAL RESULT! - status msg states message been deleted, however message is still in the Trash folder
10. Try to repeat steps 2-6 ==> ACTUAL RESULT! - not able to perform adequately any of the Edit options

This is a separate bug, and doesn't have anything to do with ActiveSync. The issue is that our local op deadlocks because we try to open the trash folder for modification twice.
Closing per comment 6.

General rule - file a separate bug if you notice something isn't working on the original bug and link it. Avoid reopening in most cases from resolved fixed. It makes tracking blockers a royal pain if we reopen.
