This morning 36 and today it works.

The other day probably a few hundred.

My total unread for *today* is 164 and that fails.

My "all unread" is 845 and that works.

Now I took my All Messages of 28.000+ and that worked too.

Wen back to *today* with 164 and now that works fine.

so I can't find a pattern ;/

Only explanation I have is that I updated to latest mailmate build and 
El Capitain since last mail...
so maybe something I had installed via brew was rewired to now work with 
the visualiser.

I'll keep an eye out on that file if it happens again.
