[MlMt] messages re-sort when marked as read

Thanks for the suggestion.  I had thought of turninng off automatic marking as read, mostly as a debugging test.  But in general I think this cure would be worse than the disease, mostly because I don't read all the messages.  I should consider whether I can put those in a separate smart mailbox.

I often receive multiple duplicate messages (e.g. on multiple mailing lists, or on a mailing list and direct to me).  When I select the first of those messages, and it marks itself as read after a couple of seconds, the message drops below the unread copies.  If I'm stepping through the inbox in order, suddenly I have to back up to select the other copies and delete the dups.  If I'm not paying attention, I end up with left-over unread messages.
