Steps to reproduce: see URL.
$wgDefaultUserOptions['lqtnotifytalk'] = true; 
on translatewiki.net, a user will receive email notifications for new threads or replies to threads if the thread is watched (that is, in LQT jargon, if it's individually watchlisted or its parent [talk] page is), regardless of their email notification settings, i.e. even if one or both of "E-mail me when a page or file on my watchlist is changed" and "E-mail me on replies to a thread I am watching" are disabled.
The only workaround is to unwatch both the page and the thread.

Gerrit change #49701
Merged by Siebrand.
Is this bugfix only supposed to work with the latest MW version?
I tested it on MW 1.19.2 and I still get email notifications if a new reply is posted - under the following circumstances:
* I watch the thread.
* I have enabled "E-mail me when a page on my watchlist is changed".
* I have disabled "Email me on replies to a thread I am watching".
As I understand I shouldn't receive email notifications with this configuration...
Reopening: after Gerrit change #58056, again I verified that I'll receive enotif for a thread I watchlisted (e.g. because of creating it) or for a thread on a page I watchlisted, even with "Email me on replies to a thread I am watching" and "Email me when a page or file on my watchlist is changed" both disabled.
Is the importance of this report properly assessed?
Critical Crashes, loss of data (internally, not your edit preview!) in a widely used and important component.
Also, is someone planning on working on it in the next six months?
high Not the next task, but should be fixed soon. Depending on teams & manpower this can take between one and six months.

Yes. Critical bugs are typically fixed in 1-5 years for LQT.
This is not about "Crashes, loss of data"; decreasing severity
