Wow, this actually looks much better (or rather much less different
from GTK2 version) than the GTK3 version on my system. You must have
a nicer theme. :)

I believe you are referring to broken redrawing of folder and message
lists when scrolling. This is something that has been bothering me for a
long time, but today I finally found a way to fix it. Let me know if
you see some more weird graphical issues like that, anywhere in the

Works for me just fine. Does this happen only for a particular account
or always? Can you send me debug output that appears when you click
the button?
