When you open some folder/newssgroup, TB position message list at last messages. Now, if you chage view of list (eg., View / Threads / Unread or View / Threads / All; View / Sorting / No threads or View / Sorting / Group by sort), TB changes content of messages list AND positions it at top, notwithstanding which message headers was shown before.

The worser, it ignores if before changing view I open some message for reading - messages list will be positioned at top, as if there is no open message, although old message will be available in message body pane. Also, keys like M (Message / Mark), N (Jump / Next / Unread), P (Jump / Previous / Unread), etc will be ignoredm until I find and reopen openned message.

Reproducible: Always
