found using 2004110105-0.9 tbird on linux fc2. if I hit Get Messages for a newsgroup, the article count displayed in the folder pane seems incorrect. 1. created a news account to news.mozilla.org 2. subscribed to netscape.public.mozilla.test group 3. downloaded headers: selected the "download 500 headers" option 4. noted that ~440 messages were downloaded 5. selected n.p.m.test, and hit Ctrl+T (or click the Get Mail button in toolbar). expected: the new message count in the folderpane next to the newsgroup should either remain unchanged (no new articles) or increment a little bit (if there are new articles). actual results: the count jumps to 808. is that referring to the *total* articles available, even though only ~440 were downloaded? it's a bit deceptive.
if I click an unread article, though, the message count goes back down to around ~440 (decrementing by one of course).
