I'd look into the situation where the user expunges a folder.  When the
mbox gets rewritten, maybe the from_offset values aren't updated or
something to reflect the new offset. That's all I can think of at the
moment. I'm sure this avenue has probably been explored before, but
maybe something got missed.

Well, either way the bug should be fixed. Switching to Maildir is
arguably a good choice regardless, though.
