I will try that. That implies CM reading ALL messages from the server in the
folder again, right?

I am pretty sure of that. 
Even so, all mails on that folder were erased. 
I checked that at server folder. 
It was not a simply counting error as in INBOX.

As it occurred just once I assumed it was something stupid I did. 
(this is not a /mea culpa/)

But I imagined it is worth to mention just in case someone else has had the
same "problem".

How to check that?
Do you mean Offline mode? No.
