When a mail is opened (by double clicking on it) in a separate window, the
auto-mail-downloader does not work correctly. It does trigger since I can see
the text displaying "Checking mail..." etc in the bottom bar, but mail (if any
is found) is not displayed. If I pressthe "Get Msgs" button (still have a window
open) it shows new mails.
If I have no mail open in a separate window the auto-mail-checker works just fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup auto-mail checking each 2 minutes or so.
2. Open an email by double clicking on it.
3. Send an email to yourself from another account.
4. Wait for 2 minutes.
5. See the "checker" run in the bottom statusbar (no new mails).
6a. Close the open email.
7a. Wait 2 mins.
8a. See new mail.

6b. Press "Get Msgs"
7b. See new email.

Actual Results:  
It does not show my new emails.

Expected Results:  
It should have displayed new messages.

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
