[MlMt] r5757 to r5917 Change Subject crash workaround

Way back in r5757 I said that using Command/MailMate/Change Subject on a selected group of messages (or sometimes just 1 message) would cause MailMate to crash. This still happens unto r5917 but I did some experimenting today.

I thought the issue might have been trying to change the subject if one or more of the messages was an unread mail in the INBOX. It is not that though.

The issue will also occur if you select one read or unread message in the INBOX and attempt to change the subject line.

But if you open the message (whether previously read or unread) and then issue the command, it never fails. Of course this is a bit more cumbersome.

(I do this to have mails sent to me personally altered with a subject line addition to redirect them into a tickets system)

Hope that helps lower frustration!
