#26 Problems deleting emails

A colleague has found a worrying problem with Mail. He starts Mail then selects a random message from his inbox and attempts to delete it (del key, menu, whatever). The message instantly vanishes from the inbox, but Mozilla then sticks in the moving message to trash state. Attempts to delete further messages in that session are all ignored. This is using POP, with mail stored on a network drive. This was with todays release candidate and clean installs (but keeping profile). We tried the previous RC and got the same results. When we went back to 1.2.1, all was fine. I haven't had a chance to properly test this, and so am slightly reluctant to put up a new blocking bug. I am concerned that this is a regression related to 142196 (an old friend of ours). IMAP works fine, and also POP with local mail. I haven't yet had a chance to reproduce it with a different user, also using POP and network drives, but will do tomorrow. If this does prove reproducable it would be a disaster. POP with network drives only became useable at 1.2, and this would send it right back again. A big problem for enterprise. :-(

Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to proceed here? Is it already too late?
