problem: the message header counts in mozilla news do not update / refresh. steps to reproduce: select a news group with new messages. select an unread message header to display the message or clcik on the little read/un-read green diamond to change a read message to un-read status. actual behavior: the message count in the left pane (mail and news server pane) does not update. expected behavior: each time a message header is read or marked unread the unread message count listed in the server pane should reflect that change / update tested on win32 build from 12/22 (and other recent builds) under windows98 additional information: the count should also update when you select a news group and it downloads new headers.

I have a fix for this. Will attach patch shortly. I found this because the same thing was happening in pop. There's a member variable in local and news called mPath that used to be a nsNativeFileSpec*. Someone brought this to the base class and changed it to an nsIFileSpec but left it in derived classes. This caused some functions to fail. I changed the derived versions to use base class version and everything worked out.
cc'ing bienvenu in case he's been given bugs that are related to this.
Created attachment 3925 [details] [diff] [review] patch for bug. This is just news directory. Local is similar. For some reason Imap is already #ifdef'd out.
