User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2
Build Identifier: Thunderbird version 0.7.2 (20040707)

When changing the label of several messages at once, the colors alternate
several times rather than just changing once.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Thunderbird
2. In the message pane, highlight several messages (say, 15) to make the effect
more obvious
3. Press 1 (to change label)
4. Press 2
5. Press 1

Actual Results:  
(Assuming label 1 has color red and label 2 has color orange.)
After step 5, all the mail messages are immediately painted red.  After a short
delay, they revert to orange, then are slowly re-painted in red.  Also,
Thunderbird becomes non-operational until the (red) re-painting is finished.

Expected Results:  
After step 5, all the mail messages should be immediately painted red, then stay
red.  Labelling should happen in the background after that, without preventing
the user from continuing his work.

This is probably also true of Mozilla MailNews, and it is very likely related to
bug 114534.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

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
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
