Thanks Kevin for the direction.

In my case, it is the another remote imap server `nnimap:r-bvr' and one
of the folder pops out with an error in the debugger. I do not know
why, or cant predict which one?

I took the deleted part from .newsrc.eld in two subsequent runs, and
ediff-ed it. Following were the observations (n, m, a1, a2, b all are

1. there is a difference in the `modseq' cdr. For example,
   (modseq . "n") changes to (modseq . "m")
   (modseq . "n") changes to (modseq) - or vice versa

2. there is a difference in active cdr. For example,
   (active a1 . b) changes to (active a2 . b)

Does that ring any bell?
