[Users] when deleting a message, the previous message becomes active

Thank you very much and I looked at the user manual on the web site and
found the next_to_delete setting.  It changed indeed the behaviour and
I played a bit with the option (changing between 0 and 1 and back) and
to my surprise at present the setting is next_on_delete=0, but it
highlights the next message (as if it were =1).  Still I am happy
because it works again as I prefer.

I tried to find another option to suppress the confirmation pop-up
dialogue when deleting a message, but could not find anything of the
kind in NEWS or manual.  Does such an option exist?

Kind regards,
