Nope, two mutts handle the situation fine. It doesn't disappear from the
list, but opening the message just shows a blank screen, and then returning
to the mailbox gives the message 'Mailbox has been externally modified,
flags may be wrong', and the externally deleted message is gone.
This then looks like a Balsa problem. Any pointers on where to start
looking? I'm guessing in balsa-message.c for handling the missing message
load and where for dealing with the mailbox message list -
