If I switch IMAP folders too quickly, say before the message list has finished loading, while the activity animation is still running and "Opening mailbox ..." showing, GNUMail keeps trying to load the previously selected folder and shows nothing on the newly chosen folder.

It then seems to hang. Console window shows "Connection lost to server [...]". If I then click it again, a mailbox error occurs: "You must select a valid mailbox to open!".

If I click it again, GNUMail crashes. But if I instead take the account offline, cancel the action "Opening mailbox ..." in Console window and then take the account online again, GNUMail continues to work fine.

GNUMail 1.30 (precompiled) on Mac OS X 10.9. Using mbox format; IMAP with TLS; 800, 1200 and 2300 messages in some of the folders.
