If that's true, this is a new behavior. I have had a smart mailbox 
called "Awaiting Response" that takes messages from "Sent Messages" and 
"INBOX" that have the tag `waiting_for_response` that I apply in 
composition.  It appears to be working fine.*

* Appears to be because my workflow has not had the right discipline, 
and I have not been applying these tags when I should.
