Happy Mew Year to all.

I'm in process of migrating to a new PC, so I don't know if these glitches are related to that or not. I'm currently running balsa compiled from git head on 16 Aug.
The migration is 98% complete, so that's a big relief. (Maybe more - I'm just allowing that I probably forgot something.)

Although the checkbox to fetch mail every x minutes is unchecked, for the past few days, Balsa has been checking for new mail (POP3) on a regular basis (maybe ever 10 minutes or so.) Is there some other setting that might affect this? When I'm not actually sitting in front of this box, I don't want it fetching mail, so I can check for new mail via IMAP on my other devices. It's worked fine that way for many years. Note it was also working as expected on this new box for at least several days or weeks. Actually, I'm not certain it is on any regular basis, but it has been checking when I'm nowhere near the keyboard, and it also sometimes seems spontaneous - or responding to some inadvertent mouse movement or keyboard click.
The spontaneous fetch has stopped, I have no idea why it started or why it stopped.

The spontaneous fetch has stopped, I have no idea why it started or why it stopped. Next issue, in settings, I have checked the box to expand threads on opening a mailbox, but threads are fully collapsed. If I expand one, then close and reopen Balsa, it's closed again. Is there some secret setting I don't know about, or is there something I can check for in some config file?
This is still the case, and I found an additional annoyance. If all threads are collapsed, I have a message near the bottom of the message list selected, and I hit Ctl-E to expand all threads, all of a sudden, I am up near the top of the message list. I suspect if I was on the N'th entry, I am now still on the N'th entry - but it had been only counting threads, and now it is counting all messages. Is there any reasonably easy way to have it scroll so the selected item/message is still in the middle of the displayed section?

Thanks for saving my sanity.
Still the case.
