I have a similar practice of periodically checking the headers of unread
Junk messages to make sure they're not legit, and marking them as read.
I sort by "Status," which puts all the unread ones together regardless
of date, and I do this with the reading pane disabled (just click the
divider between the reading pane and the message list to open/close it)

I would suggest that when you are about to do your review, you disable
the "remember the last selected message" option, do your marking (and
reading if necessary), and finish by selecting a message in a different
folder and re-enabling the "remember the last selected message" option.
That way, SeaMonkey will remember the legitimate message you just
selected instead of a junk message.
I don't understand why you want that option enabled; it sounds
bothersome. When I've read a message and not yet replied but I intend
to, I mark it as unread so I'll notice it again later. I can see at a
glance by which ones are bolded which ones I need to address. And
SeaMonkey bolds the names of folders containing "unread" messages as well.
