Bug Description

I followed the steps from the qa tracker testcase:

Test-case name: thunderbird/tb-003
This test will check that Thunderbird can create Address Books, Contacts and Mailing Lists

Click on "Address Book" in the top panel
The Address Book should come up.
Create a new address book (File > New > Address Book)
Create a few new contacts (File > New > Address Book Contact)
Create a new mailing list (File > New > Mailing List)
Drag and drop one contact to a mailing list
Drag and drop multiple contacts to a mailing list
Do all of these actions complete with no errors?

These steps completed without errors. However, the contents of the mailing list are not listed in the table on the right side, and the status bar says the mailing list has 0 contacts. However, on opening the "properties" of the mailing list, the dropped contacts are shown.

This in confusing, and I believe the contents of a mailing list should be shown in the table on the right side.

See screenshot below for how it looks...
