Mail highlighter skips all the way to the bottom of the mail list when more than
one mail item in IMAP mail listing is deleted at the same time. If one deletes
only one mail item, the highliter moves correctly to the next mail, however, if
more than one item is deleted, the highliter skips to the bottom of the list.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Dislay IMAP mail list
2. Highlight more than one item for deletion.
3. Press delete

Actual Results:  4. The highliter jumps the the bottom of the entire list.

Expected Results:  5. The highliter should move to the next mail item after the
deleted items or not move at all (Netscape 4.7 behaviour).

0.9.5 did not fix the problem. The problem occurs regardless of 
the sort: I tried Date, Subject and Sender. The problem occurs in 
each case.

It seems to me that the problem can be easily solved by implementing Netscape 4.7 
behavior. In Netscape 4.7 the highlighter is simply turned off after items are 
selected and marked for deletion. In my opinion, turning off the highlighter is 
more intuitive after the deleted items are marked than repositioning the 
highlighter to some other mail item (especially when the highlighter skips to the 
bottom of the mail stack; the current Mozilla behavior).
