I think I found out when this happens:
1. Open a folder with mail marked as new
2. Read the messages, and delete a few
3. Switch to another folder, or to the same folder
3a.Open the folder from 1. again if not already
4. Find all messages marked as new again
If I read all messages -- and nothing else -- and sync the mailbox ($)
then they appear to be marked as read, and keep on being marked as read.
Maybe the delete code interferes with the code to mark the messages as
read? I don't have time/guts to look into the code to check this at the
Gentoo on a different level
