I have the same setup and see this same bug. My theory is that the next 
message is selected _before_ the message window closes instead of after, 
causing it to be opened for a split second.

Until this is fixed, what I’ve done is enable the setting to “Mark 
messages as read after 1.5 seconds”. That causes them to be marked as 
read when I actually open them, but not when they get selected for a 
split-second. Of course, you can tweak the delay to find what works for
