I also agree that we should get rid of it. Initially it was me who
implemented it that way but since I usually have my messages sorted by
date it'll not change anything for me. Also reloading the entire page
is IMO not too much of a performance killer because it only happens
when there are potentially new messages waiting to be listed. Let's
just reload the current page in any case and then see if there's any
need for performance improvements.
