Closing search moves what mailbox you're looking at

Reported by nall | February 4th, 2014 @ 04:55 PM

MailMate has a behavior that I find annoying (I am not sure if it's intentional).

To reproduce:
1. Select a mailbox
2. Search (that mailbox or all Messages -- it doesn't matter)
3. Select a different mailbox
4. Close the search box (using the minus button in the top right)
5. See the mailbox change from the one selected in #3

I want MailMate to not change my selected mailbox when I close the search window.

Is this intentional behavior? If so, is there a preference to change it to behave how I'd like? If not, is it a bug?

    It's intentional, but I'm aware it does not work well for many users. I'm still considering alternative/optional behavior.
