It's easy to prevent this by unsetting the Mark Messages Read box in

maybe I should try that approach, it would probably help me keep my
inbox manageable.  However, I still think the current behavior with
"Mark Messages Read" checked is buggy.

Note that the message is marked as read only if you're using Preview
mode (since logically it means that you *have* read the message).

that makes sense, and it does match the current behavior.  However,
having lived with the current behavior for a couple months I find myself
wanting something else, and since there's code and a comment in
e-mail-reader.c that seems to indicate the "something else" that I want
is actually the intended behavior, I'm inclined to consider the current
behavior to be a bug.
