I moved the entire directory out of mozilla-thunderbird, deleted the
account, and then created a new one.  Performance is now even worse. 
There are few things that I can do without triggering a crash.  At the
moment I'm using Squirrelmail, since there's something wrong with KDE:
KMail now fails to start.

Let's do that.  I need a pointer or two.  I assume that protocols = imap
is equivalent to protocol { ...imap }.  Is this correct?  I shall try it
and see what happens, but I don't want to make things worse.
