That would appear to be a bug, then.  I never use that combination,
instead setting view unread only (matching articles only) by default,
toggling to view all, occasionally, when I need to go upline to get
context from a previously read parent.  Having each subthread displayed as
a separate thread under those conditions, if the unifying parent is
previously read and therefore hidden, is desired behavior here.  However,
if match article threads isn't doing just that, it's a bug, either in the
description (tho what would be the difference between match threads and
match subthreads if the description is wrong) or in the behavior, and
should be filed as such.

Indeed.  Charles made a good decision, there.  It's just too confusing to
keep straight, particularly trying to help folks in the lists/groups,
the way it was.
