Are you using the "back" button on your browser? If so it's just that the page is cached, and you're looking at the version of the page when you DID have a new message, but you've already read it. Just reload the main page .

It could be that the sender deletes it from their outbox before you read it, so it doesn't get delivered.

Not sure if it works that way though

Appears this and the possibility that sender bins them as they are sending, maybe in error? is the most likely explanation. Done a bit of testing and that appears to be the only way I can get it to do it.

Will monitor. PM me if it happens again.

maybe there's a phantom flan flinger sending pm's and deleting them for a laugh.

Were this the case, I might suggest they got out more though. :)
