I suspect this was the case - you ran out of disk space, and Claws Mail
was unable to write out some of the config files. There's not much we
can do in this case - we could attempt to revert all the
unsuccessfully-written files to previously saved version, but in
situation with zero free disk space, even that operation is likely to
fail, either partially or completely.

IMO, best thing an application can do in this situation is to display
an error dialog to the user, and _attempt_ to revert affected config
