If MT-NW applied the filters to all subscribed groups before you opened
them, it would take a lot longer to update the message counts in the
subscriptions window. In effect, it would have to open all the groups

You could try asking Simon Fraser to add an option to have MT-NW
pre-fetch headers & apply filters for all the subscribed groups before
you open them. He might consider adding it to his to-do list.
Or you could just do like I do, and open a bunch of groups all at once.
Whichever group opens first will pop up in the front, and you can check
the new messages in that group while the others are still opening. When
you're done with one group, close its window and the next will be there
waiting for you.
