I'll be happy to have a go. I've upgraded the installation on Crush, and I'll
take each point in turn, trying each one with the cache enabled and disabled:

Cache enabled: This problem still exists in 0.3.1.
Cache disabled: This problem no longer exists. It looks like this is a cache
related problem.

Cache enabled: This problem no longer exists.
Cache disabled: Again, this problem no longer exists.

In summary, this report appears to have identified two distinct bugs. The
latter one has been fixed in the new version (message that were marked as
unread weren't being marked as read when you log back in), but the former
still exists with the cache enabled (new message in non-Inbox folders don't
get seen on initial login if the cache is enabled, you still have to manually
check for new messages or wait for the automatic check timeout to occur).

Let me know if you'd like me to try anything else or provide any further
information and I'll get right to it.

All the best,
