Attachments on IMAP account (and the message that contains them) become garbage regularly

Bug Description


Every day or two, I get an email with an attachment (I've noticed this particularly with a Google Apps Gmail account) that becomes garbage. By that, I mean the attachment is shown inline (which might be binary stuff if it's a word document), and the rest of the message, including headers, it's messed up.

The only "solution" seems to be to remove the corresponding INBOX.msf, but of course this means I have to have TB rebuild that file very often.
