Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login into KDE desktop
2.start mozilla then mozilla mail from the browser frame OR
3.launch mozilla-mail by itself from the KDE menu.
Actual Results: Main mozilla-mail window opens, but does not display any mail,
local folders, or news group folders. If, at this point, one attempts to run the
Account Wizard, the New Account Settings dialog will hang, as will mozilla mail.
NOTE: the browser displays its side-pane contents as it normally would in Gnome.

be read, or otherwise managed, including composition of new messages.
