[MlMt] Keyboard shortcuts for message-only window in r5800 are not working

I think the problem is not keyboard shortcuts as such, but the next/previous command in single message windows. I've noticed that the next or previous message causes the next or previous message in the mailbox window (which does not have focus) to be selected but not opened.  Instead the currently opened message remains open.  This is true the first time you use next or previous message, subsequent attempts to use it do nothing.  This happens no matter how you trigger the action.

I suspect this is related to this item from the 5799 release notes: "Fixed: Some actions in the single message window did not work. (Fixing this involved some low level changes which might have unexpected side-effects.)"

FWIW I'm seeing this running 5802 on Mohave.
