This probblem started, i believe, on 09/01. News group headers are being
download twice. Thus throwing read message status off and confusing the thread
pane window. Especially in threaded mode. Messages won't mark as read.
Unthreaded they may, sometimes. Then when threaded again, the unread column
shows a negative unread count on the thread.

You can verify the double download by setting the preference for number of
headers to download to a smaller number, say 100. Then delete the msf file for a
newsgroup that has more than 100 headers or choose a new newsgroup with more
than 100 messages that hasn't been download. click on the newsgroup name and it
will ask to download... I select 'mark rest read', and ok. It starts to
download, then the same dialog box comes back up again as it attempts to
download headers a second time.

If you are fast, you can see it double download as it downloads new unread
headers on newsgroups that you follow closely.

This is fixed in the current build... 2000090606. Must have been part of the
tree double selection problem that was fixed... nevermind.
