Design issue  Destination forum incorrectly shown as "Unread", after moving a thread

The destination forum/node is shown as "Unread" when some other user moves a thread to it (even if you've already read it). Here are the steps to reproduce the problem...

User 2:

1. Start with a clean slate. No unread posts + No forums showing up as unread.

User 1:

2. Post a new Thread

User 2:

3. "What's New" => The newly posted thread shows up.
4. Open the thread. This marks the thread & forum as "read".
5. "What's New" => No results

User 1:

6. Move the Thread to a different forum (with or without a redirect)

User 2:

7. "What's New" => No results (correct behavior)
8. "Forum List" => The destination forum is shown as Unread. (incorrect behavior)

Unfortunately, there's really nothing that can be done with this short of recalculating read data when moving a thread - which isn't really feasible.
