[PATCH] emacs-show: open excluded matches if no other matches

Currently emacs show does not open matching but excluded
messages. This is normally the desired behaviour but is probably not
ideal if only excluded messages match. This patch opens all the
matching (necessarily excluded) messages in this case and goes to the
first one.
