            Bug ID: 4187
           Summary: Folder new/unread status incorrect after power off
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: GIT
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: UI/Folder List
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: removed-gdpr at example.com

I have experienced several unfortunate power offs while reading email and RSS.
Roughly the STR is:

1. Have some new/unread messages (email or RSS)
2. For simplicity:

FolderA: 5 unread
FolderB: 0 unread

3. Read the messages in FolderA, marking them as read
4. Do NOT quit CM but power off (or kill it?)
5. Run CM again


FolderA: 0 unread and not show bold.


FolderA is still bold (and blue if it was blue in step 2). Clicking on it shows
that all messages are read (correctly). Right after that click FolderA is no
longer bold.

I suppose this may be due to CM writing the status of the folder on quit which
leads to the described data discrepancy. Although this is not an actual bug it
would be better not to have this discrepancy. Otherwise (suppose) if one has to
go through many messages and folders if some unfortunate event causes an
abnormal program termination.
