A little more investigation shows that it only happens when there is only one message in my inbox. And only when this message has not been read (a new message). Once there is more then one message in the inbox and I change the selection from the first to the second message and back again, the messages get marked read.

Comment 2 Eddie Lania 2010-05-30 13:36:46 UTC
As a workaround, I can right-click the message and mark it as read, ore double-click the message to open in a separate window which also marks it as read.

Same issue here, started with the upgrade to fc13
