Version:            (using KDE 3.5.8)

press F5 to check the IMAP account for updates. Then the message list
goes hyperactive: First new messages are added (to the bottom of the
list in my case) causing the previous entries to scroll up. Then the
new messages are temporarily removed, and the list scrolls
back. Finally the new messages are re-added.
