Five years and counting. Perhaps no-one in devland has seen this bug.

In my case it was caused by something unknown causing claws-mail to crash and 
burn, and lose its entire configuration (fortunately a single IMAP account, 
easily re-entered). The "unknown" could be related to my use of Enlightenment 
e17, which sometimes sigsevs. 

So it's hard if not impossible to reproduce, and thus impossible to 
fix...except that the error we see here is easily fixed by making the program 
test for the .bak version of the xml file. Probably five lines of 
code...pretty please...
