So you mean other users' shared mailboxes? .. The way it should work is
that per-user seen flags are used only when dovecot-shared file exists
in a mailbox. But then again, if that exists then the owner's \Seen flag
also exists only in index file. So this has never really worked the way
you want, I don't know why it would have appeared to work in 2.0.5..

Attached patch should make it work the way you want, but I'm not really
sure how I should permanently handle this. Some people want \Seen flags
shared, others don't. So this would have to be configurable somewhere..
