I can't explain that. On my setup, when I set the scan depth large
enough, expanding or collapsing the IMAP tree is instant, and the
highlighting is always consistent. When you write `there are no
mailboxes telling me where there are new messages', do you mean that
there are no mailboxes revealed, or that they are revealed but not
I guess this might be server-related: I'm using Cyrus, but I believe
that others have tested the cvs code on uw-imap.

Thanks--so do I!
With a fast connection, is the repeated mail check implemented in my
previous patch a nuisance?
