This is a good idea but breaks my habit of using 
	macro index,pager c "<change-folder>"
followed by a keypress of
to navigate to folders with new mail. It would be great to emulate a TAB
only after the folder list is displayed. 
Btw, when did this behavior change? Is therer a chance to track this
down in neomutt sources perhaps?

Thank you all for your help!
