Sorry, that was a typo.  Should've said: "Mailboxes with NEW mail aren't
bold like they should be."

1) The window that pops up with the message list.  When it pops up, if
Eudora is minimized, it shrinks the message list window.
2) Yes, it's set for 5 minutes.  I don't know if it does it when I check
manually-- it only does it if I have it minimized, and if I check
manually, I generally don't have time to minimize before the download.
3) I'm not sure-- I switched away from the builtin libraries when I had
the problem with mailboxes in the list not going bold.
4) KWM.  It's KDE 1.1.2.
