I wasn't so much responding to your problem as Randy's comment. I have exactly
the same situation as Randy, on multiple email clients, so in our case I think
it's the IMAP server itself. In your case, perhaps KMail was doing some special
handling to avoid that, that it no longer does (for instance, since at least one
of the clients I use can see the new message counts, but I can't read the mail
until I change folders and go back, any client that simply closed & reopened the
folder if the mail counts changed would have no trouble).
