Hi guys.

I haven't used any patches, it is virgin Cyrus IMAP4 2.2.10, with my 
setup and file layout. Could someone make a comment on the cause of thei 
"feature". Simon, you said that the patch is more like a hack. The 
question is, should we go the hack path or improve Cyrus?

Note that I have seen the behaviour on Mozilla, too. I'm guessing that 
seen state is not being propagated at all. Then it is really a question 
whether that patch should be called "OE seen state patch" :-)
