That bug is filed against SeaMonkey specifically. There is a Thunderbird 
equivalent at <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=487386>, 
which is already on the papercuts list at 

If the code is shared, then bug 541876 should be marked as a dupe of 
487386 and bug 487386 moved to mailnews core? If it's not shared code, 
then bug 541876 doesn't apply to Thunderbird.
