In 2.3.recent, the second to last step of undump (xfer) is to open the mailbox (which will cause it to be upgraded), retrieve the INTERNALDATE, and set the mtime accordingly.  In short, xfer in 2.3.recent updates the mailbox, immediately, not when the mailbox is next opened.  No idea what 2.4 might do...

Oh yeah - you're right.  That's missing in 2.4 and I think it's because I
planned to replace it with replication stuff which uses the append logic
which does that on the fly.  But I haven't done it yet.  Would make sense
to add that back, at least for now.

Thanks for pointing it out :)
