> Setup:
>  * fresh OpenSUSE 13.1 with default updates (kmail/kontact 4.11.5)
>  * fresh home directory
>  * pop3 account connected to inbox
>  * approximately 80 destination folders under "Local Folders"

> Observation:

>  * if I create a new local folder "C", move the message from B to C and

> Workaround 2:
>  * create a new folder "A-Parent-2" and subfolder "A2"
>  * move message from A to A2
>  * press F5 (no duplicates should re-appear in A)
>  * select A2 and run "Folder - Remove Duplicate Messages"
>  * delete empty folders A and A-Parent
>  * rename A2 to A  and A-Parent-2 to A-Parent

This might have the same reason than something I observed just this weekend:
I added a new folder to my local folders and it took several seconds until it
was shown. Afterwards I manually moved messages to this new folder. The showed
up correctly in KMail, but no in the corresponding folder on my disk
(.local/share/local-mail/...) so they seem to stay in the akonadi cache
forever. Just a second after trying to move them the reappear in the original
folder. The problem didn't show up with another folder I created. So it looks
like the main problem being a folder not being created correctly.
