Thanks, that answered most of my questions.  One last thing :

Is it possible to disable the syncing on every write ?  I don't mean to
use that in production, but when rebuilding database from scratch I
guess it would speed up thing significantly.

Any idea about how to find what have caused database corruption ?  I
kept a copy of the malfunctionning mailboxes.db before I rebuilt it.
I'd really like to understand what went wrong in case I might do
something to prevent this kind of situation in the future.

Again, thanks very much for your insight!
