Details

We're leaking the account manager because we write to cache when the account
manager gets shutdown.

I'll put more details here in a bit...this was the chicken & egg problem I
posted to the newsgroup last week.

fixed by making the folder cache a listener on the shutdown of the mail session,
and writing out the folder cache then.

How would Suresh verify this fix?
If he can use the debugger, he can set breakpoints in the constructor and
destructor for the nsMsgMailSession and verify that it only gets constructed
once, and destroyed once. Otherwise, he could ask Alec to verify it.
I'll verify this fixed.
