Yes. The lock file is removed for example.

Not unless there is a real error with the POP3 server.

It is.

Doesn't the pose the risk of wrecking the list of indices? That's what I 
got from some posting on the Net regarding imap_expunge() problems.

Anyway, from the debug output I added the control flow seems okay. It's 
just that expunging does not work. No matter whether I use imap_expunge() 
or the expunge flag for the (missing) imap_close() call.

Starts to look like an incompatiblity between my version of PHP and the 
POP server. Will have to reproduce this with a standalone script.
