Description Rik van Riel 2006-11-14 15:29:41 EST
Description of problem:

Overnight (or while I'm at the office), Thunderbird sometimes puts up many
dialog boxes with "please enter your username for news server access". The
number of dialog boxes can be in the dozens, and they're all on top of each other.

To make matters worse, it does not tell me for which of my usenet accounts the
dialog box is!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

thunderbird-   (old?)

How reproducible:

Let it sit overnight.  Sometimes it happens...

Expected results:

There should be at most one dialog box per account.

Each dialog box should tell me for which account it is.

Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or
Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know
in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we
will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
