Hi Sam,

when `resolve` is set to true, if you tag something, the cursor is moved 
after the tagged thing:

1. tag a message -> cursor to next message
2. tag a subthread -> cursor to next subthread
3. tag a thread -> cursor to the next thread

What do you think a less astonishing behaviour would be?
