I found Thunderbird 3.1's archiving "feature" rather dismal. It lost

across four years, putting them in the wrong archives. I haven't used
it since so I missed any more archiving problems since then but I
haven't avoided other problems between 3.6 and 12.0. It did lose some
more incoming messages somewhere after 3.6.x. Fortunately I had
incoming mail delivered to a second account as well using aliases just
in case this problem reoccurred.

That points another arrow at the update/downgrade of:

[2011-06-29 08:26] upgraded thunderbird (3.1.11-1 -> 5.0-1)
[2011-06-29 11:05] upgraded thunderbird (5.0-1 -> 3.1.11-1)
[2011-06-30 15:43] upgraded thunderbird (3.1.11-1 -> 5.0-1)

being the culprit. That is not heartwarming though. That block of mail is just
gone...
