Dunno if this helps, but I just tested a manual workaround that
worked to clear out two stuck draft messages from yesterday.
I looked in my Drafts folder in the GMail source, and saw a whole
lot of messages marked with red dots except for two. There were
already copies of those two (and all the others) in the Sent Mail
source folder, but the two Drafts copies hadn't been red-dotted.
I manually dragged the messages from Drafts to Sent Mail. There
was a flicker of activity, and then the two Drafts messages showed up
there again, but this time with the red dots. The copies in Sent
Mail were still there, and no duplicates were created in Sent Mail.
I wasn't watching the Activity monitor, so I can only guess, but
it feels like my attempt to manually drag the messages over forced
GMail to re-evaluate them, thus getting them red-dotted in Drafts
without creating duplicates in Sent Mail or any other icky side
