Re: Using "Next unread message" not quite as expected

Hi Andreas,

Thanks for reporting this! An issue <URL:> has been opened 
for discussion of the problem and possible solutions.

Another observation with the latest version pulled from github: Suppose there's an mbox with several unread messages. 
You open one message by double-clicking it in the main window. This will bring up a new window for just this message. 
The new window contains a button "Next unread".

Expected behavior: The next unread message from that mbox will be displayed in the same window where you've 
clicked the button.
Actual behavior: The new window still is open and displays the first message. The next unread message will be 
displayed, but in the main window.

'That's particularly bad if the main window is on a different virtual desktop or hidden behind other windows: You won't 
notice that new message is displayed there, so you may hit the "Next unread" button repeatedly without 
(apparently) anything happening, while one message after the other is marked as read in the hidden window. If you don't 
realize what's happening, you *could* miss important mails.

It would be great if you could look into that as well. (Perhaps I just didn't see a setting controlling that 
behavior, in that case I apologize for the noise. :-)
