How does it determine that you've read your friends page? Does it require that the user be logged in or it won't work?
Why does it appear to have new=1 then a few minutes later when I checkfriends again new=0 and I haven't read my friends page?
I notice the behavior on the win32 client is similar and seems to require that to reset the flag that you have to launch a browser from the client... What seems to be the best way to handle this?
The docs elude to stop polling after you receive a new=1, but it doesn't offer a clear way of what is necessary to restart the counter.
