Cyrus IMAPd 2.3.7 Released

After more testing, I have confirmed that v2.3.7 is doing something nasty
with my Seen database.  To verify, I have done the following experiment
(using Outlook):

1) Open my INBOX.

2) Mark a message as Unread.

3) Open INBOX.test

4) Open INBOX.  The message is no longer marked as Unread.

If I look at my xxx.seen file, it gets larger after each of steps 2, 3, and
4.  I am using the default database type, which is (I think) skiplist.  I am
not using auto-preview or reading the messages.


[I suspect it may have done something unsavory with my Seen data, but
unfortunately I didn't save a copy so I can go back and make sure.  I will
continue to investigate.]
