I got the log. It is over 500 kB in size, so I put it on my website:

What I did:
1. Install claws-mail-dbg from Debian repository, just in case
2. Check "bandwidth-efficient mode" for IMAP account in question
3. Uncheck "fetch new mails checks this account" for all accounts but
the one in question
4. Close Claws-Mail
5. run 'claws-mail --debug > claws-mail-reverse-status.log 2>&1'
6. "Read" status of all messages was inverted and first (automatic)
check for new mails bring it back to normal. I checked for new mails
again, so it inverted all of them and showed 2700 unread. Check for new
mails again to make it correct. Quit Claws-Mail.

I have removed e-mail addresses from log file. As far as I can tell,
e-mail address of account in question is not advertised anywhere on the
web and I would prefer it to stay this way (a little less spam to fight

Hope that helps. If there is anything else I can do, just let me know.
Best regards
