It would appear that when deleting  both KMail and Thunderbird copy the 
  message to a Trash folder and mark the original message as deleted 
(T). Thunderbird not only marks the original message as deleted (T) but 
also as read (S).

Gnubiff + KMail Notifier count unread message marked for deletion.

If compacting the inbox in KMail or Thunderbird, the messages marked for 
deletion will be purged and thus no longer be counted.

dcop kmail KMailIface compactAllFolders
does not purge my IMAP inbox.
