When recovering from crash, frequent full sync's are necessary

    I've found that when MailMate does crash, there are options to either re-start mailmate to recover, or to re-sync the DB. Re-synching the DB for me with 330k messages takes hours (just for a simple consistency check). I have discovered, however, that the issue has always been that unsaved draft messages cause the re-sync to be required. If I choose not to import a message that was being composed, I can simply re-start mailmate and it comes back up without re-sync. This get's annoying for me as if I do searching for "Unquoted Body Text" (see related ticket also filed on 8/30/14) I get frequent crashes (about 25% of the time), and then any message that I'm composing is basically lost unless I don't want access to my email for hours as it syncs. This forces me back to gmail.com, which is awful :)

    Sorry about the loss of drafts. I believe the latest test release is faster at rebuilding (but it'll still be slow), but I also believe the crash bug has been fixed. Let me know if this is not the case.
