Open mailnews.
Choose a folder and change the read/unread state of a message.  The message will
disappear.  If I take out the bold style then this no longer happens.

Scott, does this mean that after this bug is fixed, unread messages will show
bold again?
No.  After this bug is fixed I have to change my code to put the bold style back
in.  I took it out so that your messages wouldn't disappear when you read them.
Please let Scott Putterman know when this is fixed, so we can get the bold back.
My hands have deteriorated to the point where I can no longer type.  I need
help.  If you think you can fix this bug on your own, please take it away from
me.  If you'd like to volunteer to be my hands for a specific bug, then I'll be
happy to come up to your cube and sit with you and fix the bug (assuming you
have the patience for that).

OK.  I don't know what to do with this bug. So Im going to mark it fixed.  Paul
commented out the code that was causing this and I turned bold back on.  So this
works now.

I do not see the problem any more in these builds woth the bold text turned on
for unread.
