Interesting. The cvsup was 13 May, about 21Z. I can't reproduce it
on a 7.1-PRE box (build: 2008-Oct-15) either.
The 6.3-STABLE box has been well-behaved since, so I haven't had a lot
of reason to futz with it. Maybe I'll run it up to the top of 6-STABLE

Hmm... Wonder what tipped you off? :)
I switched over to dovecot in Maildir mode for some of my users who
seem to have excessively large mailboxes. Performance is much better
for them, and I'm trying to adapt myself.
Anyone know of patches for mush to use maildir or imap? (Antique finger
neurons that really don't want to be retrained.)
