I have 9 mail profiles in my Thunderbird install.   If I  utilize anything after
the 7th profile in the list, most of the other profiles disapear.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Need 7+ Profiles
2.  Use 8th profile or higher.
3.  Next launch and should only see a few of the profiles.
4.  Choose one and then shut down, next restart usually shows all profiles again.

Actual Results:  
Profiles disapear for a short time

Expected Results:  
Show all profiles all the time

I have a similar problem with only 4 accounts with 1.5 RC1 on PC W98 SE.
1) installation 
2) import mail (three accounts) from mozilla
3) change from defaut directory to another Disk/directory 
4) manual copy of all files from the default to the new directory
5) add new account from account manager
6) this last account appears only within the account manager
7) it seems that xxx.default/prefs.js is corrupted because it exist id6 but not id4 or id5. I don't know the logic of this file, also I didn't try to modify it.
