I've had this again, and as things stand it always happens, but not in a
way that can be easily diagnosed.  It seems to be folder-related - i.e. it
happens in some folders but not others (it never happens in the folder
that contains messages from this list), and in some odd way seems

I've done the following several times and it seems to be repeatable for me.

Start Claws
open inbox
most recent message is selected
Click View and then "show all headers"
Headers of most recent message appear
Click the previous message
message is shown without headers
Click further up the message list and there are no headers for 18 messages
and then headers appear again and then disappear and reappear seemingly at
random as one highlights older and older messages.

I seems to be the same messages each time that either do or do not show
headers, except that Claws will always show the headers of the message that
is currently selected when headers are turned on - even if that message's
headers were not shown when headers were turned on with a different message
as the selected message.  If you see what I mean.

Sorry I can't be more precise.  I can always see the headers of the current
message when I turn the option on, in any folder, but clicking on other
messages doesn't always show the headers.

I'm using a fresh install of ubuntu-mate 15.04 since I first reported this
issue, Claws is 3.11.1  I don't know if it's relevant but the machine is on
24/7 and Claws is opened at startup and never normally closed, though the
issue survives closing Claws and re-opening.
