Which distro are you using? Where do you get the packages for Thunderbird and Lightning from? Both from your distros package manager or from the Mozilla website? Or did you compile yourself?

Mixing the sources may lead to problems.

This may be due to the usage of different compilers for both packages. Even if it has been working before, there might have been a change on either the side of the distro or Mozilla.

As mentioned above, please make sure to use both packages from the same source.

Side note: starting with TB 38, there should be no need for a separate installation of Lightning anymore, at least for the Mozilla version as this bundles Lightning (amongst others to avoid such problems). But I don't know whether PclinuxOS also provides a bundled Lightning with the TB package.
