Messaging menu TB extension disappears when TB is closed

Messaging Menu Thunderbird Extension

Bug Description

Ubuntu 11.04 x64 Unity - not sure if this is a big or not, but think so, since I used an earlier version of the extension before it got integrated into TB 5.0. When TB is open, TB is listed in the messaging menu and works as advertised. However, when TB is closed, the icon for TB no longer appears in messaging menu. When I used the previous version in TB 3.1.x on the same system, the icon in the messaging menu remained there, so one could launch TB from the messaging menu itself.

I tried adding a static entry manually with and without sub entries which works great when TB isn't open, but when I open it I get no sub-entries (compose, contacts and even new mail).

Using Thunderbird 5 from Mozilla's PPA and v0.7.2 compiled on a 64bit machine.

That will be fixed already once this branch is merged in:

Oh, actually, that branch only fixes the problem described in the second comment, which is completely unrelated to the original bug. Please don't mix different issues in the same bug

I'm sorry of the mix up. I tried that as a workaround for the disappearing since I had no idea what the intended behavior was (just installed the extension for the first time).
