Kinda a follow-up on #1064 (and I did it recognize it back then, but forgot to add a report)

Starting a new smuxi-server session sets the "Last read"-line into the old session. If someone was talking this also sets the unread counter.

That the last seen message is remembered even across engine/session restarts is a feature though. What is wrong in this situtation? That you could read the unseen messages while Smuxi wasn't running? :-D

Ah, ok.
I suppose I'm kinda "If I didn't read it back then, I don't want to be bothered with it on next start".
But as it is a feature (and after I checked for it explicitly and indeed no issue and behaves like you explained) this can be closed.

Now I had a situation, where it didn't work like it expected.
My last message before quiting was on next start presented as an unread message.

That can happen when the frontend loses the connection unexpectedly from the engine. Was that the case? It only updates the last seen message when switching away from a chat or on clean disconnect/quit.

IIRC I wrote the message and without window switching issued /shutdown

Oh /shutdown, yes this is probably a corner-case and with that a bug. The engine is shutting down and the frontend disconnects but doesn't quit. If this is reproducible it should be fixed. Thanks for the intel!
