In my experience this happens when new mail arrives in the box while it is open. I do not know
what fixing this problem will entail; hopefully a new folder system in development will help.

This is because of how Balsa adds folders. First, the folder is loaded from the configuration file.
Then, Balsa scans for folders and adds it again. The workaround is to check in the scanning code
whether the folder is already present, but I haven't done it yet.

That bit of code for some reason stopped working with the new view code. I'm going to fix it right now
because it's such a pain in the ass :-)
