I read a lot of usenet groups using Thunderbird. I add trolls to my kill file to
avoid reading their posts. I've noticed that some people I have to keep adding
to my kill file because I keep reading their posts. They do not change emails,
but for some reason, Thunderbird stops filtering them out. What's up?

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add annoying poster to filter by right-clicking on email address
2. Wait a few days, sometimes hours
3. Go back and read posts by filtered user

Actual Results:  
Posts that should be "marked as read" according to the filter settings, are
shown unread.

Expected Results:  
The filtered messages should be marked as read.
