  Thank you for the suggestions ... its fascinating and helpful ...

  But what kind of silly (add adjective to please) design necessitates
that the user of the program defrag databases .. thunderbird was even
worse with GLODA.

  What is wrong with these program designers - this kind of housekeeping
should never be imposed upon the user even if its a button push ...

  Either they made bad design choices and better choices exist which do
not need this cleanup nonsense (which is clearly the case with
thunderbird using mbox instead of maildir) - or they need to figure how
to do it themselves periodically (fsck every N boots) if no better way
can be found.

  And chrome is so much faster anyway ... in time I would not be
surprised if it takes over as the dominant browser. What does chrome do
- it does not suffer this issue at all - perhaps firefox can try and
follow chrome.
