I experienced a similar problem with Thunderbird on Windows. For me, it 
ended up being folder compaction. Changing the settings on compaction 
(Tools/Options/Advanced/Network & Disk Space) reduced the frequency that 
folders are compacted, and thereby my frustration, but did not eliminate 
them. I agree that the UI should not be affected by maintenance functions.

Hope this helps.
