User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826

In the newsgroup subscribe dialog, subscription status is not shown and the
Subscribe/Unsubscribe buttons are not operational.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right-click a news server in Mail/News tree window
2.Select Subscribe...
3.Try to subscribe to newsgroups.

Actual Results:  
Nothing. No subscription status is reflected, even for previously subscribed
groups, and the Subscribe/Unsubscribe buttons have no apparent results when used.
No new groups are added after the subscribe dialog is closed.

Expected Results:  
A mark should be shown in the Subscribe column indicating the group's status,
and the Subscribe/Unsubscribe buttons should set/clear the mark and the status.
When the dialog is closed, subscribed newsgroups should be listed in the 
newsgroup's tree control.

It worked in 1.0. I have not yet tested in 1.2.
Are you running any 3rd-party themes?  Or just Modern / Classic?  I don't see
this with build 2002-11-01-08 on Windows 2000.  Could you please try a nightly
build?  Your build is nearly 2 months old.

It is working in 1.2b.

I was also using a nonstandard theme, and I guess that might have been causing 
my problems. I didn't think of that.
