I think i have spottet a BUG in the seen status of the INBOX.

I was testing migrating User from UW-IMAP to Cyrus 2.3.1 with mailutil.

mailutil copy -merge append \ 
"{UW_IMAP/user=test1/ssl/novalidate-cert}INBOX" \ 

the Seen status from the copied Mails is lost, all other Flags seam to 
be right.

if a mark one of these eMails with my eMail-Client (Thunderbird), close 
my eMail-Client and copy the INBOX again with

mailutil copy -merge append \ 
"{UW_IMAP/user=test1/ssl/novalidate-cert}INBOX" \ 

the new eMails keep there Seen Flag.

copying to subfolders makes no trouble.

i have a pached version of mailutil which accepts the option
"-merge append" in copy mode, but copying mails with Thunderbird shows 
the same  effect
