I think I mentioned something about this on the list a while back.  If it's the same behaviour as I was seeing, then it's caused by messages not being scored/filtered immediately (presumably the hook doesn't get called).  Meanwhile the message is marked as read.  Then the hook finally gets called, the message is scored, and left as unread.

Does this match what you are seeing?

I presume that a fix for this would be to record the unread/read status of the message before scoring, and set it to the same after scoring is complete.  Mark might do this at some point, although he seems busy with a lot of other fixes :) at the moment.
