#982 incorrect unread entry count and minor display glitch

Interface (127)

Using Liferea 1.8_rc1 on Funtoo Linux x86_64. The number next to "unread" is incremented by one each time a new item is downloaded, but does not go down when read. In the screenshot attached, you can see that I have 7 unread items in all, but the counter at the bottom of the left pane incorrectly states 373. Aside from that, the start up screen doesn't seem to like dark themes. The rest of the application obeys the theme.

    I cannot reproduce this with recent releases. Please retest with 1.8.7!

    I've tested Liferea 1.9.7 from ppa:liferea/liferea-unstable in Ubuntu 12.10 x64 and the bug remains unfixed.
    Seems like when you reboot (force kill?), the "Unread" filter keeps the last unread count as zero, so when you open Liferea next time, it will never go below that number. Right click the filter and select "Rebuild" to get the correct numbers again, until the next reboot.
    If there's anything I can do to help debug this, I will be glad to try.
