:) It works as I described too!  Wild!  The option that determines it is 
Tools->Account Settings->Server Settings->"When I delete a message"
if you change it to "Mark it as deleted" you'll be seeing what I'm 
seeing, which is that Thunderbird loses the "seen" flag.

My patch will make it perform exactly like Thunderbird, except that 
instead of a preference determining the behavior, the presense of the 
Trash folder determines it.  When a message is moved to the Trash folder 
Seen status is maintained.  When a message is marked as deleted, Seen 
status is lost.
