Email meltdown in progress

Maybe it’s a coincidence, but just after installing Thunderbird 2, deleting emails started taking 5 seconds, then 15, then 30, then a full minute. Then it quit working alltogether. Also 14,000 old mailing list messages materialized in my Junk folder. My inbox has hundreds of unread, and drastic measures might be needed to get things working again… -m

    Update: After letting Pine run for a few hours in a SSH session, it tells me my Trash has 59,794 messages. Clearly Something Bad Happened. -m

    All fixed, but I’ll leave this up here for the benefit of future generations (or other Thunderbird 2 users that might happen on the same experience). -m
