I have noticed that "run filter" doesn't actually do anything unless the filter selected is marked "active"

I was planning to use the new "run filter" feature to periodically clean up , or move messages to archive folders based on date. These are typically rules that I don't want to have "active" during normal use, since there is a large potential for trouble.

Shouldnt the "run filter" option ignore the "active" flag ? The fact that I select a filter and press "run filter" kind of indicates that i want it to RUN, and not silently do nothing..

At the very least it should tell you to mark the filter active before trying to execute it.
