No, this is how it's supposed to happen. The behavior for the last 2 weeks was incorrect.
When you visit the forum, only posts which are new since your last visit are marked unread. When you read them, they are immediately marked read.
Next time you visit, those posts that were "unread" after your last visit are marked as "read", and only the new posts since your last visit are "unread".
The assumption is that if you didn't read it during your last visit, you probably don't want to read it (unless there's new activity in it, in which case it would get a new unread mark).
