Correction. About 5 minutes after posting that I'm using, I got
a little update notification in my tray, telling me that a thunderbird
update was available. I applied the update and now I'm using :)

So I sent myself a test e-mail and sure enough, same results. The red
asterisk cleared from the email when I clicked on it, but the red
asterisk on Inbox and Local Folders remained.

Another interesting detail: This time instead of clicking "sent" or
"trash" to clear the Inbox asterisk, I clicked on Local Folders (the
parent folder for Inbox). When I did, the red asterisk on Inbox remained
but it cleared from Local Folders. Then I clicked on "sent" - asterisk
still present on Inbox. Clicked on Inbox, then back on "sent" and the
asterisk went away from the Inbox icon.

So, it seems the behavior is different when I click the parent folder
than it is when I click on a sibling folder like Sent or Trash.

In any case, the bug is still present in

Thunderbird's New Mail notification asterisks don't clear right away
