>Description:
If I describe it in terms of the "screens" that one navigates...
Screen 1 - list of RSS-feeds
Screen 2 - list of stories per RSS-feed


If you select a site with unread news from Screen 1, you are presented with the current list of stories (Screen 2). Your selection is automatically placed at the first unread selection (signified by bold text). If you 'o' to open that story, a browser is launched to view the story. After quitting the browser, you are placed back at Screen 2, but the status (read/unread) of the item hasn't changed, and if you 'q' to go back to Screen 1, the number of unread items remains unchanged.
>How-To-Repeat:
start snownews
select feed with unread news
"o" on unread story (!not [enter] to view short desc.)
quit browser, quit current screen to go back to main screen.
>Fix:
pressing [enter] to view short description of stories sets the "I've been read" status, but "o" to go directly to story does not.

 This problem is not really a pkgsrc problem. It would be much more  
 productive to report the problem to the original author of Snownews,  
 at http://kiza.kcore.de/software/snownews/
 He knows his software much better than i do, and will be happy to get  
 such improvement suggestion.
 Do not hesitate to mention the original bug report
 http://www.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=31927
 to Kiza, and keep us informed on the way this was fixed upstream. I  
 would be happy to integrate a patch for this issue, once it is fixed  
 in Snownews

 Best regards,
 antoine
