I left a Gmail draft message open in Mail since yesterday because I’m waiting on a detail to finish and send it. I’m not sure what’s going on here, but I have hundreds of these copies of my draft in trash now. Mail seems to save two every minute, then trash them (a single copy of my draft is in the actual Drafts folder).

Is this a bug? Or is Mail designed to intentionally save zillions of copies of a draft (just for Gmail accounts?) while the window is open? Can someone explain what the hell Mail is doing here?

Same thing happened to me recently.
