Tracking categories doesn't seem to work..?

Continuing the discussion from Topic List design experiments:

I decided that I wanted to track every topic in the forum. To that end, my user preferences look like this:

However, I still had to set the auto-track to ‘always’ to be tracking the topics, and they show up as Regular when I first enter. (If the category tracking was indeed working, I would expect it to be Tracking before I entered the topic.)

Dunno, this is a question for @sam. When I use category level prefs, it is for rare individual category muting and category watching, not something as pedestrian as tracking. And certainly not that many of them.

Indeed this was busted and is now fixed, as reported also on TDWTF.
