But SMB2 wouldn't affect the IMAP protocol.   Is your local Thunderbird dir
stored on a network share?   If that's the case, then it's probably the 
same problem
that others are experience about UID's not being resolved consistently 
(if at all)...that would cause possible file read/write problems and it 
might think it needs to
d/l again.

    I'ts not just browsers.

    I was saving a large file (maybe that's the key -- a file that takes 
a long time to
write -- was saving a 2GB image from from photoshop -- couldn't save it 
AT all..

Had to pull it out of the vfs_recycle to put it in place.
