hang sometimes when copying to the Sent folder. Also, some messages are

cannot find any information that conclusively describes either the
problem or the fix. I'd very much appreciate any suggestions.
I'm running 2.2.13-14ubuntu3.1 (yes, Debian packages are ridiculously
outdated.) I'd be happy to compile a newer version from source if I knew
for sure that this is a problem that's since been fixed.
