Yep, I guess different workflows call for different behaviours.

If you're like me and use the tagging mechanism in order to select a 
number of messages that you want to apply some action to, then it's 
pretty convenient than tagging a message automatically moves you to the 
next one (so you can tag that too, perhaps).

I soldomly tag a message and immediately want to act upon the same 
message.  I guess that only happens at the end of a tagging sequence.

So, if you tag more than 2 messages, you will have spared key strokes :)

Anyway, glad you could fix your inconvenience with "resolve".
