Hmm.  I had this happen to me (Outlook 2002) today.  Exactly as you describe
- the message would be moved as far as SpamBayes was concerned, but the
Outlook view wouldn't change until I deselected the message(s).

Annoyingly, though, I can't duplicate this now.  I had wondered whether
maybe the Exchange server had been updated and that caused it, but that
wouldn't explain why I can do it again later.  I have restarted Outlook
since, but it seems unlikely that that was the fix.

In any case, if I do come across this again, I'll be sure to look into it
more.  Until then, I can't think of anything but writing it off as an
Outlook/Exchange quirk.
