I'm using Debian wheezy (testing), and using Thunderbird (Icedove) for
retrieving gmail via IMAP. I have the same thing happen pretty often, and if
I click on another message then go back to the one that had the 'artifact'
from the wrong message, it then usually shows the correct message text. I had
it happen last night, and I actually had to go back and forth to the message
twice to see what it actually said. 

I suspect it's an IMAP issue, but I'm not an expert.
