Thanks.  Let me record in this thread what I will believe it will take a
reproduce this in a test:

1) inbox and sent are Maildirs

1) Compose mail to a mailing list which will return copies of
   submissions, with `Fcc: sent -unread`

2) notmuch new, and in post-new hook, notmuch tag -unread -- folder:sent

Expected result: copy of message in both inbox and sent has Seen flag

Actual result: only copy of message in sent has Seen flag
