Yep, noticed that "coincidence".

Not that I can see here in this session, tho it is possible that it has 
done so previously and the (bogus) size is being cached by Thunderbird 
somehow.  I've had a poke around thunderbird's state file and it seems 
not (but without understanding the INBOX.msf file format I can't be sure).

I'll try and set up some truss runs to catch this failure on a new 
message - it seems pretty common so we'll see.

10240 is also a suspicious number (=10k); I wonder if that magic number 
appears anywhere in Dovecot? (or Thunderbird, but I ain't scanning 200Mb 
of source to find out!)
