No, it looks for the first unread message or, if there is no unread mail, the most recent message.

In some cases (I guess when the mbox was left untouched?), it defaults to selecting the top message. When this was marked unread and (once again, I guess) it takes longer to open the next mbox, it just seems that this is enough to consider the top message as read.

?? Balsa marks a message as "read" only after displaying it. If "Automatically view message" is unchecked, it just scrolls to the first unread message, but if that option is checked, the message is displayed and consequently marked as "read".

This is really bad as it could mean not noticing new mail has arrived in an mbox. Any ideas how to cope with that?

Uncheck "Automatically view message"?

Ooops... yes, that did it!
However, I'm not really sure I want to shut off auto-message view completely. Usually I don't shut balsa down, so it normally keeps running for days. When manually opening an mbox, "Automatically vie message" really is a useful feature. It's just when cycling through the remembered-open mboxes on start-up that it becomes a nuisance. Would it be possible to implement an option that disables this feature for just the program start-up?
