[sylpheed:32086] Minor annoyance

Hi all,

I've been using Sylpheed for several years now and I've just rejoined
the list.

I've currently using 2.4.5 and 2.4.8 and both have a minor annoyance.

I am on a *huge* number of mailing lists, and sort each list into an
individual folder which means that there are more folders than the
folder pane can display at once.

The annoyance is that when I want to go to a new folder, I find it
in the folder pane and then click on it. The message list pane is then
updated, followed by the Folder list being redraw. The problem is that
this redraw of the Folder pane almost always gets it wrong and scrolls
the current folder off the bottom out of view. This happens regardless
of whether I use the scroll wheel or the scroll bar and is worse for
folders at the bottom than for folders at the top.

My suggestion is that the redraw of the Folder list is probably
un-necessary. Since I was able to click on the folder I wanted, it was
already in view, so no redraw is required.
