Screenshot of confilcting message information

I have several accounts configured in claws-mail, one of them is IMAP for
gmail. At some point during the last few months I noticed the imapcache
starting to sometimes produce wrong content.

The screenshot describes the problem, let's take the "From" field as an
- in the email list, the highlighted item is from Emil.
- in the integrated message view, the heading (on gray background) says from
- in the integrated message view, the content says from Kenneth (incorrect!)
- in the separate message window, the heading says from Emil.
- in the separate message window, the content says from Kenneth (incorrect!)

The email body is from a wrong email, not the one I chose/opened in the list.

I opened the separate message window to assure you that simply clicking on the
email list does update the integrated message view. (I seem to recall another
similar bug report, where you suspected the GUI was simply configured to not
update the message view on simple click in the list.)

When I notice wrong email content, I quit claws-mail, do 'rm
and restart claws-mail. This is needed to make the email content appear

I am accessing the gmail via IMAP from two separate machines (independent
claws-mail installations), but the two claws-mail instances are never running
simultaneously. The problem can happen in both instances.

I also have automatic processing rules in both installations for the gmail
Inbox, which moves messages from Inbox to e.g. mesa-dev folder. The processing
rules are not identical between the two installations.

The version of claws-mail is 3.10.1 as from Gentoo official packages
