And add sieve to the SUBDIRS line in the top-level Makefile.am.

I haven't been able to prove this, but I'm confused. It's was
a new mailbox, just written with the results of all the daily
tests. You are sure that the mailbox isn't opened writeable
briefly to update/add the Status and uid header fields?

The only other program I used was mutt to look at the mailbox.

I haven't been able to duplicate this, so I guess it's kind of
nebulous. I was hammering the disk pretty had, linux was basically
frozen, who knows what could have caused this.

The reason I was hammering the disk so hard was i was saving
the entiry msg as an attachment, instead of the part, oops. I'll
patch the mbox-explode.c soon. But first, spring cleaning.
