Uncached newsgroup message failed to be displayed in Message Pane immediately after opening a binary attachment.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.    Select a message with attachment (we call this message A)
2.    Double-click or select open to load an attachment in message A
3.    At the open file dialog, open the attachment file with an application or cancel
4.    Return to Thunderbird without changing the nntp server or thread
5.    Select any another unread message in the same newsgroup that was not previously loaded
Actual Results:  
1. message display view is empty
2. attachment pane lists the same files as in message A

Expected Results:  
Contents of the selected message should be displayed.

Temporary workaround:

1. Select yet another message (message C or message A), contents will be displayed correctly

2. Re-select message B to view its contents

This problem is only specific to NNTP thread views. IMAP appears to be working fine. The default character encoding of the newsgroup subscription used in the above steps is set to Chinese Traditional (Big5-HKSCS), in case it matters. Application-wide default is UTF-8.
Can you produce an NNTP log of the session (preferably with a recent trunk nightly)?
