Under Thunderbird 0.8 on Windows XP if you select "View Unread" and then view
some messages Thunderbird will update the message selection area after a few
seconds.

The update will hide the currently viewed message from the selection window.
This update also for a short time clears the message selection area as it
populates it with just unread messages. 

Versions before 0.8 did not do this. Is there a way to set the way "View Unread"
back to the old method. Having the message I just read vanish, clear the message
selection are, re-update the message selection area is anoying. I liked how I 
could start Thunderbird at the begining of the day and not have to keep 
switching the View to find just read messages.

Reproducible: Always

also happens on linux using 0.8 - and you are forced to select "View ALL" to
perform task on message being read

This also happens with Custom views.  I have one that is called "Labelled and
Unread" that allows me to see important, and new messages.  If I click on an
unread one, and a new message comes in, I can't respond or forward the one I am
looking at which has disappeared from the list.

You've got a change to msgHdrViewOverlay.js that's part of another bug I need
to review. 

should this:

+dump("uri == current loading folder uri\n");

use your viewDebug method?
