I'm running 2002031803 on win98.  When I start mail I have an extra unread
message count next in parens next to the folder name in my folder pane.  I have
to click the column selector over the scrollbar and deselect unread and then
reselect it in order for the unread count to disappear and just show the unread
count next to the total.  When I exit the program and restart it, the extra
unread message count shows back up again.

Expected behaviour: the unread message count in parens doesn't show up when the
unread message count column is selected to display.

Today's build, Win2K. I worked on existing and new profile in order to follow
Jon's steps, but got little bit different ones. By default Unread and Total in
the Folder pane are off. So we have expected number in parenthesis next to
Folder pane. Select Unread column in the column picker on the Folder pane.
Number in parenthesis next to a Folder disappeared as expected. Close and open
Mail. Now you see extra number in parenthesis next to a Folder AND the same
number in Unread column.
To my opinion, it is better to change the summary: extra info about not read
messages in the Folder pane after closing and re-opening mail. Jon, comments?

whatever summary makes the most sense as long as the bug gets fixed. ;-)

I just upgraded to 2002040203 and still have the same problem every time I start
mail: unread count in parens, unread count in the unread column, and total count
in the total column.

adding regression keyword since it didn't used to do this.

I will attach a screenshot. As mentioned above, the problem goes away if you
deselect 'unread' and then reselect it (by clicking the column selector), but
only until you restart mail&news.

I find this bug is rather disturbing because it's nearly impossible to identify
the names of the newsgroups I subscribed (-> screenshot).

I would be very glad if it's fixed soon.

this is adt1.0.0- but nsbeta1+ so will this land on the mozilla 1.0 branch in
the near future?  It would be nice to have this fixed for mozilla 1.0, adding
mozilla1.0 keyword.

adt1.0.0+ (on ADT's behalf) for approval to checkin to the 1.0 branch.  Please
get drivers a= again, since their previous approval is more than 3 days old. 
After, checking in, please add the fixed1.0 keyword.
Keywords: adt1.0.0 → adt1.0.0+

Sorry if this is a unnecessary comment, but will this fix now go into 1.0.0
automatically? If not, can somebody please do the necessary steps?

Once it gets drivers approval it should be able to land.
