[Evolution-hackers] Re: NewMail notification from folder.changed event

Looking further, I see it is worse than this. In function
real_flush_updates() (which originates the folder.changed
event) the up->new field is used to set flag
EM_EVENT_FOLDER_NEWMAIL. However, up->new is not an indication of truely new mail, but rather is a count
of mail added to this folder (regardless of its unread

So this is why even things like 'play sound' are incorrect -
since this same function triggers that notification if
up->new is non-zero.

I'll keep digging ...
