Elm and xfaces refresh...

Hello Faces' Fans,

I overheard the discussion about xfaces not being able to correctly reflect
the current mailbox state; I had the same problem, but it's easy to fix:
After reading (part, or all) of your mails, you have to <ehem... manually>
press the '$' character to force elm to do a refresh. At this moment elm
incorporates all changes into the "real" mailbox (not the copy it wrote to
/tmp/mbox.$user). To facilitate this, you might have to set some defaults
in ~/.elm/elmrc so that deleted messages are really deleted by default, and
read messages are not/are moved to ~/mbox.
