No.  I've confirmed this twice int he last week, once just now.  I'd read 
the Email copies of the new messages before I refreshed the page, so they 
definitely came in before.

hmmm, doesn't explain why this should be the case if I hit the "Click here 
to reload this page" link.  Shouldn't that just refresh the list of 
pending tasks without processing anything?
