Using latest version of GNUMail from git on Debian testing, I'm trying to move messages from a remote folder to a local folder. I open two mailboxes -- one at the remote and one at the local -- select all messages in the remote one, click 'cut', activate the local mailbox window, click 'paste'.

I expect that these messages disappear from the remote mailbox and appear in the local mailbox one day.

Instead, GNUMail downloads these messages (as seen in Console; this takes about 20 minutes) and marks them as deleted in the remote folder, but they never appear in the local folder. These messages still stay at the remote folder, as I can see from another email client.
