I've got a strange issue with 'ghost messages', sometimes when I switch folders I get messages that don't belong there. Say I go to trash, I might see a message that's really in inbox. Hitting the trash folder again solves the issue and gives me the correct list. A seemingly related and reproducible issue is when you search for a common word (say a mailing list) and drag all messages to another folder (in my case trash), they'll disappear for a little while... then in their place 'spawn' some other messages!

Now a second issue I had, one which I'm not keen on reproducing, and I'm not sure is related: Upon deleting everything in my trash (hitting the 'empty' button), the server took a long time... so my guess was something hung. Then, while the browser still said it was loading, I clicked the inbox folder and everything was gone?! No clue if this bug was only in the SVN is was using at the time, or if it's still there. Just thought I should mention it.

Cheers,
Mattijs
