Wow, this is a cool side affect. What is happening here is that when you click on 
a link in an email message in the webshell we use to display messages, the 
.location URI gets changed to the link you click on.

mscott: not sure, but just wondering if URL dispatching could have anything to do 
with this.

We do initialy run the url you just clicked in the docshell of the mail window
until we discover its content. Then we redirect the url to the new browser
window. So the docshell thinks the last url we ran was indeed the url you
clicked. and that's why it shows up in view source for the mail window.

Hmm...so is there anyway to reset the docshell to the original URL which is the 
message we are displaying? Either that, or I need to get the current url from 
the thread pane selection.

Hi Scott,
Don't sweat this one...I think I have a better solution for this that is 
actually a better feature in the end :-)

Ok, I have this one fixed now and will checkin later today. There is still a 
problem with HTML source being interpreted by Gecko, but I am working with 
rickg on that one.
