Yes, exactly the same here, except on Solaris.  Removing the indexes
seemed to clear up this message, which I think was locking up some

However, I still get a message when trying to filter the mail from INBOX
into other maildir folders that talks about 'uid in the middle', or some
such.  The move fails for the client.  This message was mentioned this
week by myself and at least one other person.  I have had to give up on
test52 for now.

Thanks, Alex
