[Users] X-Status data not imported?

Hi all!

I'm new to Claws and after having gone through the manual, FAQs etc. I'm 
finally trying to migrate all my more that 10 year old emails from kmail 
to Claws to jump into the wagon.

I could successfully convert the whole maildir folder structure to MH 
format with the kmail-mailbox2claws-mail.pl script provided with Claws.

The problem is that after the initial import, and after  "checking for new 
folders" and "rebuilding the folder tree", although I can access the 
emails themselves from Claws, all the messages appear without 
any "replied", "forwarded", "marked", etc. marks and in the "new" state.

Is this how it is supposed to be or I'm missing something?

The only reference I found about this is an old thread [1] mentioning 
parsing the mail Status and X-Status data "manually" and writting them 
into the corresponding .claws_mark files.

If this is the way to proceed I'd modify the import script or write a 
postprocessing one in order to do so, but regarding this, is there any 
formal documentation about the .claws_mark file format or should I go 
straight to the sources?
