Darel and Zeus have reported that they have seen "scan: bad message list unseen" messages when they run mh-rmail. They use GNU Mailutils.

It appears that newer versions of Mailutils use the same message as nmh, rather than what we used to expect namely, "scan: message set .* does not exist."

    The solution here seems to flush the buffer of any common scan output and not change the check depending on the variant in use.
