output of strace thunderbird

Description of problem:
After update to thunderbird 3.1 and respective lightning, thunderbird no longer starts.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. update thunderbird to latest versions in updates-testing
2. close thunderbird
3. wait a couple of moments
4. start thunderbird again
Actual results:
thunderbird does not start giving no error whatsoever

Expected results:
thunderbird starts normally

Additional info:
I verified that with a fresh profile. Oddly enough, if you start thunderbird in safe mode, close it, and then fire it up again immediately (in normal mode) it will initialise.

Exactly the same issue with enigmail (in rpmfusion).
So I think this is not a lightning bug, but a thunderbird one.

Another workaround :
rm -f $HOME/.thunderbird/*/extensions.ini

I think, this one should be closed as duplicate of 608511
