When selecting a range of messages in the message list (by first clicking one single message, and then clicking on another one below or above, while holding down Shift), collapsed threads (with all of their children) that are somewhere within this range appear as selected and if an action is performed, e. g. deleting the selected range of messages, the whole thread is deleted, as expected.

If now, after selecting such a range, I deselect a collapsed thread by clicking the first (and only visible) message of it while holding down Ctrl, it appears that actually only this very first message of the thread is deselected. If I now press "Delete" only the first message of this thread survives, the children are still selected and are deleted. I'd have expected that the children are also deselected.

Tested with the latest version on (0.8.2) and verified on 0.7.2 too (IE8, Firefox 16.0.1)

i think this commit broke the deletion of collapsed threads, at least for 0.8.

reverting to commit a0682b5 restores the functionality.
