Changing folders in IMAP breaks aerc

With a big M$ IMAP account with many folders, aerc crashes on me if I try to change folders (with repeated use of next-folder and prev-folder), and I believe that it has to do with me going faster than aerc. When I do that, I get a broken pipe. When that happens, the account tab becomes unresponsive and I can only exit and relaunch.

If I can provide more info, please let me know how to do that.

Add the traceback of the crash.

For this, redirect stderr to a file, else the message is garbled, so aerc 2>/tmp/error

at least you mentioned a crash in your email to the list? So which one is it? Aerc getting stuck or aerc crashing?

It's not really crashing, but that tab becomes unusable and I have to restart in order to use it. I wrote stderr to a file and the file is empty.

I attach a log file for stdout.

I am experiencing the same behavior - the bigger the folder, the longer aerc is stuck as it loads
