Suggestion: Thunderbird does local compacation of the mailstor, and deletions
that hit the threshold and trigger this may be slower than others.
(I have a vague sense thunderbird does this; I could be wrong. Assuming the
server is using Maildir I don't see why this should happen on the serverside,
nor have I had that experience even with large folders (large enough that no
mail client can handle them properly)).
