From one front page check to the next (some 30 minutes in between) the count of unread messages in two main threads went from: 1) near zero to over 400;  2) from around two hundred to over 600.
Since then incremental changes in counts seem to track newly arrived messages correctly, but the high count seems to slow down the initial checks to get going when switching to see the top pages of the threads.
The only coincident odd thing I found was a "commercial message" that got through the spam check that was dated 1969 (!).  Hours went by before I noticed that one and deleted it.  I did not open that message and I also emptied the trashcan.  No difference in response between before- and after deletion and quitting and opening the application again.

Reproducible: Didn't try

The bug happened without any clear cause.  There only was the coincidence of the arrival of unwanted spam, but I am not certain that the Spam had arrived at nearly the same time.
