window goes inactive. If I move the mouse to another window then back to
thunderbird, the title bar again becomes active, but no controls do anything -
no menus work, etc. And clicking the close box causes the "not responding - do
you want to terminate the app" message to appear.
If there is a way I can provide any more information please let me know what you
No longer happens in F8 with thunderbird-22.214.171.124-1.fc8.x86_64.
