more on my kmail 100% problemns

I just noticed that 1 of the 2 lists I had sorted into subdirs by the 
year, was placing new incoming messages in a subdir I had prepared to 
hold the 2019 messges, even though the filter rules said to put new 
incoming that matched that filer rule, into the main folder.

So I shift marked the 2019 folders content a month at a time and drug it 
back to the main emc folder, leaving the 2019 folder empty, so I deleted 
in and its 3 subdirs.  This of course crashed kmail. On restart, its now 
doing 95%+ but is doing it for only a few milliseconds per core, 
switching faster than gkrellm can accurately track. But for some reason 
its skipping core2? ??  ??? And then it crashed again, and I submitted 
that report. Now on the restart, which nicely saved this message, its 
back to using all 4 cores for a couple seconds each.  But I mentioned 
it, so it just stuck on core0 for about 15 seconds.

Now trying to get some clues from lsof and a few filter stages of grep, I 
find one instance per year for the emc folder, but the other, "coco"
folder and all its subdirs will need a final |wc -l showing 170 
instances. I just found I'd not nukes the coco's 2019 indice stuff, so 
one more restart. But I'll send this first...

Cheers, Gene Heskett
