The problem seems to happen when multiple messages from the same user arrive at the same time.
Each message will appear in the inbox, but the link to the message will take you to the same message.
Example.
I bid on 3 companies from the same person at the same time. Now when I won the bids 3 messages were generated at the same time and sent to me.
Their links were all the same

The problem seems to be that there are only two ways the system identifies a message. By sender and by time received down to seconds.
So if two messages are received at the same time they get the same link. And you are unable to read the second message until you delete the first. When you delete the first message the link takes you too the second message.
While not earth shattering... kind of annoying, especially if you don't like to have to clean out your inbox ;)
