When you save a message residing in an imap server, Alpine checks to see if the size reported by the server matches the size computed by Alpine. If these two numbers don't match, Alpine will fail to save such message.
 
This patch adds the feature ignore-size-changes, which when enabled makes Alpine ignore these errors, and still save messages whose size do not match the reported match.
 
It is recommnended that this feature be disabled most of the time and only enabled when you find a server which reports sizes incorrectly, for the behavior in Alpine is preventing you from losing data, in case there is a real error when saving the message from an IMAP server.
