Using a thunderbird 20040520 trunk from CVS.

If "Mark message as read after displaying for X second(s)" is turned on in
Thunderbird's advanced preferences, clicking on an IMAP message fetches the
entire message including all attachments, so it takes a long time to load on a
slow connection.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Turn on "Mark message as read after displaying for X second(s)" in
Thunderbird's advanced preferences
2. Turn off View->Display attachments inline
3. Click on an IMAP message with a big attachment

The whole message is loaded, including attachments. This can be seen from the
IMAP log or deduced from the time it takes to load on a slow connection.

Turning off "Mark message as read after displaying for X second(s)" fixes the
problem, as does the hack in attachment 148941 [details] [diff] [review].
