I see the same behavior on my notebook. I gather from talking to keithp that things like the 'state of already being read' aren't being picked up from the file names in the local Maildir yet. Thus I suspect it's a fairly unusual / worst case scenario trying to start up with 178k (in my case) supposedly-unread messages tagged inbox. I haven't figured out how to quickly tag everything as already read or archived or whatever .. can someone who knows more about what's going on confirm my hypothesis and if so, suggest the best approach to getting to a happier state?
