It would seem, coincidentally with this Account linkage stuff, that your own Posts are triggering the 'New Post' icon (number) to activate next to a Thread. It used to be that after you went to the bottom of a Thread with a 'New Post' icon number and left the Thread the number would clear. And if you posted to that Thread before you exited it would not trigger the icon number.
As of Tuesday, when you post and leave a Thread, you get the 'New Post' icon, showing one new post.
Is some setting in the background that changed, or is the system seeing you as a different poster than you are as logged into the Boards?
