I don't use those features, but it does sound similar.

I should have added that I am using maildir and
set sidebar_visible = yes
set sidebar_new_mail_only = no
set mail_check_stats = yes
set mail_check_stats_interval = 30

I was thinking the mail_check_stats might be influencing this, since 
it will update the view automatically, but turning mail_check_stats 
off hides my sidebar.
