            Bug ID: 364558
           Summary: Flagging as "unread" triggers multiple-selection
           Product: kmail2
           Version: 5.1.3
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: message list
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: holy at pcg.wustl.edu

I use threaded display, and I typically go through my mails hitting "+" to
advance to the next unread message. I've had a long-standing bug that causes
kmail to (unexpectedly) selected multiple messages, which can be dangerous: if
you hit delete, then it affects all selected mails, not just the one you're
reading now. Moreover, if there is more than a screenfull of messages between
the initially-selected message and the next unread one, you may not even
realize that multiple messages have been selected.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
- Select 2 consecutive mails in your inbox, hit "Ctrl-U" to flag them as unread
- Select a message above the 2 unread message
- Hit "+" to advance to the first unread message
- Say to yourself, "hmmm, I'll deal with this later" and hit "Ctrl-U" to
re-mark it as unread
- Hit "+" to advance to the next unread message

Actual Results:  
You should notice that both messages are selected. 

Expected Results:  
Only the 2nd message should be selected.
