I can confirm this problem, and I have been getting a lot of user
complaints about it.

I've looked at one case. When I used an old imp interface to delete/purge
one message, the count started to be correct, and then I started to use
the new interface and it seemed to be working correctly.

Possible causes:

- multiple sessions?
- mailbox corruption?
