Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2008-06-02 06:46:57 EDT
Did you update from F8 to F9 by yum?
Comment 2 Tobias Vogel 2008-06-02 06:52:43 EDT
I downloaded the F9 DVD for my architecture and updated via the DVD-Installer
Comment 3 David Reed 2008-06-02 10:26:37 EDT
I discovered and worked around this.  It has to do with the dictionaries moving
to myspell in the fc8-fc9 transition.

The fix is to "rm -rf /usr/lib64/thunderbird-" before doing
the update.

If I were an rpm packaging expert, I'd provide a fix to the .fc9 package.

Here's the yum output that says that the rename of the dictionary tree fails:
# yum update
