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.
