About the uid.c file and the scratchlist data
Each account with UIDL engaged that is listed in
.fetchmailrc retrieves IDs of already seen messages
from .fetchids. IDs that belong to accounts that are
currently not in .fetchmailrc are stored in a
scratchlist (static struct idlist *scratchlist;
). The idea I guess is to preserve IDs of messages
even for users who are not in the fetchmailrc
currently but may be added again later.
Unfortunately, it doesn't really work that way as the
scratchlist gets wiped out whenever there is a
successful update of IDs for the users currently in
fetchmailrc (function uid_swap_lists). You probably
really want to preserve whatever is in scratchlist
until the user involved gets entered into .fetchmailrc
again. To achieve this, I propose to get rid of the
in uid.c file. The downside of course is that if the
user is never put back in .fetchmailrc again, some
entries may hang around .fetchids forever.
