Comment (by SlothLoveChunk):

 I will do my very best. As I mentioned above it doesn't happen for every
 @mention, so I haven't figured out with 100% certainty triggers it.
 First, to answer your questions:

 - The comments I am trashing are those posted by "Subscribers".  I am
 logged in as an admin.
 - This is not a multisite install, so there is no 'mu-plugins' directory.
 - Nope, I do not run any type of cache, including an object cache or
 server side caching.
 - Regarding caching, I do run caching on the production site, but I've
 been able to recreate this both locally and on the live site.

 Here is how I've been testing (locally):

 *** Preface ***  There are thousands of comments that contain @mentions on
 this site. Threaded comments are enabled, so some are parent comments,
 while others are replies (children).

 1. Load the WP comment admin
 2. Now I search for my @username.  The results will show comments posted
 by me and those that contain my @username.
 3. After making sure that I have the, "Test Mail Server Tool" running and
 I look for comments that have my @username in them (I ignore the ones
 posted by me).  I then just "Trash" one of the comments that contains my
 4. Now I wait a few seconds to see if the test mail server intercepts a
 new @mention notification email.  If it does not, I find another comment
 that contains my @username and "Trash" it.  About half the time I'll get
 an email to pop-up.

 Some interesting things I've found while testing:

 - 'Undo'-ing a comment after trashing it will sometimes trigger an
 @mention email as well.
 - Trashing a comment after undoing it does not seem to ever trigger an
 email notification.
 - It doesn't seem to matter whether its a parent or child comment.
 - I haven't found the exact use case that triggers the notification, which
 is quite frustrating.

 If you guys are unable to create this still I would be happy to show share
 my screen with you via Skype.  At this point I've consumed so much of your
 time that I sure has heck hope that this is not just happening to me. :)
