Here an example:
the message list has filter "unread"
it is not quite full
the top mail has been read, the second is active
I point to the bottom one, hold down Shift and click
the bottom one gets marked but no else...
I then try to mark the top one with shift-click. That one gets marked 
but no other
I try again from the now active top one, mark the last one and Shift-click
now all mail gets marked and I delete

this is just one example, sometimes a few gets marked
say I am on "4th from the bottom of list"
I move pointer to the top email on the list (they are all unread) and 
the 4 bottom emails gets marked...
