* stop thunderbird
* delete any .msf file you find
* you are done

i am doing this once a year as well as for the "global-messages-db.sqlite"
after i archive my current message structure below "2013" at the end
of the year and let rebuild the whole caches

i doubt there is a way to debug this predictable

it happens AFAIK when different clients are changing the mailbox state
at the same time and i doubt this only affects thunderbird, but only
for thundebrir dteh global fix is possible that easy
