What to do about CONDSTORE for GMail for TB 24?

Wayne put together a query for possibly related bugs:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?f1=OP&o3=anywordssubstr&short_desc=gmail%20condstor&classification=Client%20Software&classification=Components&o2=anywordssubstr&f4=CP&chfieldto=Now&query_format=advanced&j1=OR&f3=keywords&chfieldfrom=2013-07-20&f2=short_desc&short_desc_type=anywordssubstr&product=MailNews%20Core&product=Thunderbird&list_id=7809791

But I don't think we have a good idea yet on how widespread a problem 
this is.

Quite possibly. I've only skimmed the bug, but it sounds like the issue 
that Paenglab brought up. Unsure if it causes the same symptoms that 
protz ran into.

Yeah, reading through bug 885220, it sounds like 17.0.x is affected.

>>   * When did Google enable condstore?

Hard to say (maybe Bienvenu could pin it down to a date?). The best I 
can do is bound it to sometime after January 2013[1].

Talking to jcranmer (I think?) yesterday, he said that CONDSTORE support 
for GMail should be fully rolled out to all accounts by now.
