This is a topcrasher with Thunderbird 0.9 and looks like something we should try
to get in asap.  OE migration is something a lot of users will be using and
although 1.0 is here, if we can get a quick fix, I think we should get it in.

the fix

I added some if checks just to be safe after we create our timer.

The real fix (I think) is adding a call in the dtor of our migration base class
to  clear any pending timers before we go away.

My suspicion is that a timer is going off calling into our migration class
which had already been deleted. I looked at the code and the timer object does
not hold a reference to the callback class.
