Gmail is still delivering muted emails to my Priority Inbox's "Unread" section, despite the fact that I don't have any filter that would tell it to do this, and despite the fact I'm not in the recipients list.
(It's from a Google Group.)

Why is this?

Could you please search for in:inbox is:unread and let me know if the same messages turn up in that search? –  Sarah Price Apr 6 '12 at 23:08
    
The muted conversation, with the Inbox, Muted, and Google/Groups labels. –  Mehrdad Apr 6 '12 at 23:12

If they do, then the problem is that the message is being delivered to your inbox. Being labeled "Important" can bypass other filters in Gmail. You can control this option on the Inbox tab of your Settings by selecting "Don't override filters."
