I migrates from KMail to thunderbird in the past, but didn't have such
problems. Have you checked the ensure that none of these 61 mail messages
are not marked as deleted (that's where the compact feature comes in)?
Additionally, try removing (with backups, of course) the MBOX file from the
relevant KMail directory, launch Mail, close it, push back the file and see
how KMail handles it. MBOX is very standardised (look inside the file with a
text editor to confirm everything is there), so I see no reason why
Thunderbird 1.5 should cough up.
