This is a known issue. Currently your messages are not lost, they are
stored in the logs, but there is no way for the UI to figure-out what
has been read or not from the logger API. Suggested design for solving
this is welcome, please file a bug if none exist, and comment there.
Some people have thought of using the logs just like a mailbox in order
to solve this issue, other would have preferred a per-connection
solution as some protocol may let you get back those messages from
server in later connections (Skype as an example).
