Kmail annoyance

Hello KDE people,

Running SuSE 11.2  KDE 4.4 with Kmail 1.13.0

I have cross posted this to the opensuse list.

First a little explanation to visualize the problem, In my message list there 
are a bunch of read messages that I keep for reference or until I categorize 
them into separate folders. Now I download new messages. They are interspersed 
with the old messages due to threading. The new messages are in red.

Now, as I read the new messages by selecting them they are highlighted and I 
can delete them or just leave them and the next message below gets highlighted 
which is fine and the way it should work.

However, as you get to the last message displayed in the message pane, the 
next unseen message appears in the pane and is highlighted. What that means is 
now I don't know whether it is an old message that I've kept or the next new 
one. Remember the new ones are interspersed within the message list.

The only way to avoid this is to stop before you get to the last viewable 
message and scroll the list up. Very annoying. In previous Kmails It used to 
scroll up two of the unseen messages so you could see the next one after the 
one you were viewing.

Anyway to change this behavior to be like it used to be? Or is this a minor 
irritating bug.      Dotan?
