I routinely show only unread (hide read) in text-groups, and have been 
since I started with pan in 2002.  I'm not seeing it with that toggle 
here.  But it's the show only read (hide unread) toggle that's new, and I 
don't think I've actually used it, yet. Could it be screwing things up?

The one thing I do have occasionally happen, that others have mentioned 
too, is a header-pane column-reset, so only the score column is shown.  I 
strongly suspect that has something to do with a load-time race 
condition, such that the resources aren't loaded properly and most of the 
columns end up at zero-width,  Anyway, it doesn't happen very often, but 
when it does, it's a pain enough to get the columns set back correctly 
once again, that I took a backup of the preferences file, did a diff when 
the problem occurred, and now do a conditional patch (dry-run first, if 
it works, patch it for real) of the prefs file, resetting any columns 
that zeroed out back to their normal width, in my pan startup scripts.  
So if it happens, I quit pan so the bad settings get saved and the patch 
will apply, and restart again, so they get patched back to something sane.
