Build 2001080110, Win98SE, IMAP

Upon logging in today I was notified that wasted space exceeded my threshold,
should local folders be compacted?  I chose yes.  I have ~4200 messages in my
Inbox, of which ~1400 were marked unread.  As the folder was being compacted the
unread message indicator was counting down.  Eventually only those messages
(~85) which had been received during this login were still marked as unread.  At
some point during the process the indicator jumped back to ~1400, then counted
down again.  At the time the process appeared to be finished (no more disk
activity), the indicator was back to 85.  Mail messages were now corrupted,
however - choosing a particular header brought up what a random portion of the
inbox, that is, the header didn't correspond to what was displayed.  Exiting,
deleting Inbox.msf, and restarting resulted in a rebuilt inbox which appears
correct, although the unread message count is still at 85, suggesting that the
unread status of messages previously kept is now lost.  Upon exiting I also
found the files Inbox-1, Inbox-1.msf, and nstmp to be in my local Mozilla mail
directory.

it. Reassign to Navin for duping
