It could be triggered by some specific kind of threading, e.g. one 
participating mail client using wrong/bad references or something like this.

Unfortunately this makes it a difficult thing to fix, since developers need to 
be able to reproduce it relyably to debug and to make sure a potential fix is 
really fixing the problem not just making it harder to trigger :)

No, actually I see it all the time as well. It is just so fast that I usually 
only recognize it when the deletion process takes long enough to make me wait 
for its completion :)

Thought so, just asked to make sure it isn't triggered by some weird focus 
shift problem when clicking outside the message list.

This might have been fixed in one of the newer 3.5 versions, but I wouldn't 
know what key words to look for in the bug tracking system.
