I would confidently go further than that and say that
Claws-Mail/Sylpheed-Claws was NEVER less stable than Sylpheed. As
far as I saw it, it was badged as 'bleeding-edge' in deference to
Sylpheed, as the project's original aim, before the fork, was to
improve Sylpheed and not to rival Sylpheed.

Therefore, James, I refute your view that Sylpheed is a more stable
product. I don't know what you read, but it was probably old, old
history and written back in the time before the fork when Claws was
the development version of Sylpheed.
