If I close the mail-news window while downloading messages from a newsgroup. The
downloaded messages will get duplicated when the download is started the next time.


1. Subscribe to a newsgroup with lots of messages
2. Start downloading all messages
3. Close the window while downloading is in progress
4. Reopen mail-news and start downloading the messages again

The messages are duplicated (in some cases many times) but the duplicates cannot
be read. Also when the thread is opened and collapsed it will get rethreaded in
different ways.

Only the messages that have not been downloaded are donwloaded and no duplicates
in the threads.
