sometimes it goes to the last read message, sometimes to the first unread, and sometimes I'm not sure how it picked the message. I have a mix of mbox and maildir, and I haven't noticed anything based on which type it is, but I haven't really paid much attention to that.

this is the behavior of maildir boxes. With maildir "the 1st uread message" is generally irrelevant to the date it was put in the box. It is more relevant to the name of the file in which the message is stored (which is also irrelevant to times).

The mbox is First in-first out, so "the 1st uread message" is mostly the 1st that was put in the box.
