User-Agent:       Opera/7.23 (Windows 98; U)  [en]
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5+ (20040404)

This report DOES NOT apply to Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5(20040207).  It works as 
Using W98SE and SuSE 9.0 with data files shared per instructions at http:
//texturizer.net/thunderbird/share_mail.html.  As the sharing only affects where 
Linux looks for the data files, I doubt this has any effect and I have not set 
up a test case without sharing.

CTRL-C does not copy text from the message preview or read windows to the 
clipboard in accounts 2 through N in a multiple account profile.  It works as 
expected in the first account.  The Edit|Copy menu function works as expected in 
all accounts.

The existing contents of the clipboard are unchanged when attempting to use 
CTRL-C in accounts 2 through N and the existing contents paste normally using 
CTRL-V or Edit|Paste.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up multiple email accounts in one profile.  (I only use one profile.)
2. Receive at least one email into the second or beyond email account(s).
3. Preview or display the message and attempt to select/copy any portion to the 
clipboard using CTRL-C.  If the clipboard is empty, it remains empty.  If the 
clipboard has contents, the contents are not changed.
Actual Results:  
The results are in an existing environment.  It has not been recreated.

Expected Results:  
Copy new selection to the clipboard.

Builds 0.5 (20040207) and 0.5+ (20040404) coexist in the W98SE partition and I 
switched between them multiple times to confirm behavior.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
