Mozilla mail/news sometimes "forgets" when I have read a newsgroup message, and
displays them as unread (bold text header) when I come back to the newsgroup a
few days later.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a newsgroup
2.Find an unread (bold text header) message
3.Read it, for long enough that it becomes marked read (non-bold text header)
4.Close Mozilla
5.Go back to the message again a day or so later
Actual Results:  
Normally, the message will still be shown as read (non-bold text header), but
sometimes it seems to have forgotton that I have read this message, and display
it as unread (bold text) again.

Expected Results:  
Display the header as read, with a non-bold text header.

I do not remember ever having this problem under version 1.2.1 - this seems to
have only surfaced since I upgraded to version 1.3 beta.

Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest nightly? Or even 1.7.2?
If not, this bug can be closed. Thanks.

I mainly use Thunderbird now and no, I've not noticed the problem for a while.
I'll reopen it if I notice it again.
