It comes with UBBT, no customization involved.
FWIW, before the server move and upgrade to 7.5.5, and even back at MFIF, I gave up on the magnifying glass as indicator of a watched topic because so often it wouldn't be there when it should. I'm pretty sure it always appeared in the thread list right after I added a topic, though.
I suspect whatever's behind the jump-to-first-unread-reply not working and the new-post indicators incorrectly vanishing is also messing with the magnifying glass. Just gotta find the fix...
