Having an account receiving mails automatically (through IMAP idle I believe, as
I didn't enable automatic message collection). When a message is received and
moved by a filter to Local Folders, the account for which the message arrived is
set in bold blue face and the Thunderbird icon is changed to show the number of
new messages. This keeps after reading the message. It is set back only when
opening the INBOX of the receiving account.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up an IMAP account.
2. Set up a filter which is moving messages to local folders
3. Receive mail for the account (in order to open an IMAP connection)
4. Set the mark in the folder pane outside the account, e.g. to local folders
5. Send a mail to the account which is triggering the filter
6. Go to the local folder where the mail is in and read the mail
7. Go to the INBOX of the created account
Actual Results:  
After step 5: System mail sound, TBs icon is changing, local folder gets bold
black, the name of the IMAP-account gets bold blue

After step 6: local folder normal, IMAP account still blue, TBs icon still
showing unread mail

after step 7: IMAP account changing to normal, TBs icon changing back to default

Expected Results:  
after step 5: Not the IMAP account should be shown in bold blue, but the Local
Folders headline

after step 6: Everything should be reverted to normal

IMO dupe of Bug 222068.

I can't reproduce Bug 222068 on 1.7RC2 but the behaviour described there is the
same as this bug. Marking duplicate.
