My phone alerts me that I have a new message in my Stack Overflow inbox. After I read the new message in the Android app it shows 0 unread messages. The next time I visit the main site on my notebook the new (December 2013) Top Bar says that I have one unread message: the message that I read on my phone. Even if I shut down my browser and wait a few minutes (to give the Android app time to "sync", or whatever), the new message indicator in the new Top Bar doesn't go away until I click it.

I don't recall this happening with the older top bar, so perhaps the new Top Bar and the Android app need to get better acquainted.

These are different mechanisms for the moment, but will be consolidated in the near future as we fully remove the last remnants of the old inbox infrastructure.
