mail-notification/maildir/balsa problem

According to the mail-notification applet author Jean-Yves Lefort, balsa does misbehave for moving messages inside a maildir. It should move messages from new to cur when it sees them or when they are opened. Not only when the mailbox is closed. I will include my correspondence with him:

Hello Jean-Yves,
first of all; thank you for making the applet!

question; why does the mail icon stay in the notification bar until the
message is deleted from .maildir/new? The balsa client only moves the
message from new to cur when either the mailbox is closed or the
program is stopped. There seems to be no way to have it automatically
closed. It can only be closed automatically after 1 minute when you
select another mail folder manually. As I have the balsa client always
on, the icon doesn't function like it does with POP3, unless I ALT-F4
every time after I read a new email.

Balsa is too lazy, it should move messages to cur as soon as it sees them.
