If there are more than one newsgroup accounts, the reply function does not work
for at least one of the accounts.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have at least two newsgroup accounts (e.g: Local newsgroup account, netscape
newsgroup account)
2. make sure full newsgroup list has been downloaded for both accounts
3. Select a message on either account and press the "reply" button.

Actual Results:  
Nothing happened.

Expected Results:  
A window should have popped up for me to write my message.

Tested with official TB0.9 build, as well as the 20041201 RC1 build.

If valid, this is a major bug.  However, I cannot reproduce the problem.

Is this bug a regression?  That is -- did it work with an earlier build, but now 
has stopped working?

Using a nightly build, examine the settings for each of the news-related 
identities -- what differences are there? (e.g. does one identity compose in 
HTML while another composes in plain text?)
Severity: normal → major

I can't reproduce this.

Well, I reproduced it by creating a new profile, manually importing all of my
E-mails from my old profile and then adding two newsgroup servers I frequently
use. When I do this I can not reply to one of the newsgroups; the buttons reply,
reply all and forward does not work, right-clicking on the message and selecting
"reply" does not work.
And yes, I had no problems whatsoever with an earlier build of TB (0.8).

Same bug here with TB 1.0. I only have one newsgroup account.

Deleting all newsgroup data in the document & settings directory, and recreating
the account, did not help.

I uninstalled TB 1.0 and tried with TB 0.9 : same bug.

Same bug with TB 1.0.2. 

I only have one newsgroup account.
