Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2008-07-25 11:17:31 UTC
Yes, can fully reproduce with thunderbird- It looks like if TB
prints out every message to the same file and so rewriting their contents.

Comment 5 Jonathan Kamens 2009-03-11 16:35:41 UTC
Please note that the description of this bug and the description of the behavior I saw in bug 489530 are different.

Please note also that this ticket is for RHEL 5 and bug 489530 is for Fedora, and they have different versions of thunderbird (and are likely to have different versions of thunderbird for a while), so I'm not convinced that it's appropriate to merge the two bugs.

Comment 6 Jonathan Kamens 2009-03-15 04:41:10 UTC
Hello?  Anybody here?  My last comment is significant, eh?  Can somebody please respond?

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 shipped it's last minor release, 5.11, on September 14th, 2014. On March 31st, 2017 RHEL 5 exits Production Phase 3 and enters Extended Life Phase. For RHEL releases in the Extended Life Phase, Red Hat  will provide limited ongoing technical support. No bug fixes, security fixes, hardware enablement or root-cause analysis will be available during this phase, and support will be provided on existing installations only.  If the customer purchases the Extended Life-cycle Support (ELS), certain critical-impact security fixes and selected urgent priority bug fixes for the last minor release will be provided.  The specific support and services provided during each phase are described in detail at

This BZ does not appear to meet ELS criteria so is being closed WONTFIX. If this BZ is critical for your environment and you have an Extended Life-cycle Support Add-on entitlement, please open a case in the Red Hat Customer Portal, ,provide a thorough business justification and ask that the BZ be re-opened for consideration of an errata. Please note, only certain critical-impact security fixes and selected urgent priority bug fixes for the last minor release can be considered.
