I have no solution, but I can see that fall victim to
this only because you insist on the message being in a separate window.
I use the normal layout with the message text just another pane in the
main Claws window, and the read/unread marking works for me when I move
through messages with N or Shift-N.

Please *no* private copies of mailing list or newsgroup messages.
