Something seems to have gone wrong with my setup here. As I've been 
testing moving large numbers of email into the archive folders (2000+ 
messages), some of them never make it to the new namespace. Instead of 
showing up like they're supposed to, they appear as entirely empty 
messages. Inspecting the raw mbox file, the message has become just an 
mbox header and an empty line. Not good! Does anyone have any idea how 
I can help debug this?

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. 
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by 
definition, not smart enough to debug it.
