Comment 28 for bug 261595

I've experienced this bug three times in the last few weeks, as my laptop is constantly running low on HD space. This bug has been with me as long as I can remember using Thunderbird. It'd be great if it could get fixed. How can I assist?

I'm using version (20090812) for Linux.

P.S.: The Remove Duplicate Messages add-on makes it easier to clean up, but it's still very annoying, especially with messages that I manually sorted into folders.
