I can confirm a CPU spike in 2.27.1 when resizing columns.  Not really
surprising since we use custom drawing code to render the message list.
That code is ancient and hasn't seen much love in the past few years.
Frankly I'm amazed it's held up as well as it has.

The best I can describe it is it sounds as if each pixel movement when
resizing columns is written directly to disk, so if you slide the column 100
pixels, it will write to the disk 100 times.  I happen to have a loud hard
drive, so it's very noticeable.  Should this be reported as a bug?
