I think those of us that faced this recent problem is aware of the normal loss of space due to fragmentation. What we are experiencing is unusually big losses. When I was using SimpleMail 3.3, monthly brainwipe/restores will recover about 200 to 300K on my 32 MB Card. Now, I lose up to 1 MB in about 10 days! That's unusual.
