That's about right, but I wouldn't call it a bug beyond being a bit of a 
poor name. The box that you checked used to be called something like 
"exclude from new mail count" and that is what it still does but I 
guess if you have some other sort of notification set up as well (the 
systray count is a form of notification, after all) it does that too.
