User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0RC1 20041201

I just updated to the new 1.0RC1 Thunderbird. Since the installation the only
thing I have done is move some of my RSS feed folders into sub folders in the
folder pain within Thunderbird. I exited Thunderbird and now when I reopen
Thunderbird I have several randomly numbered accounts showing (nothing is inside
these folders however) I deleted them previously but two more recently showed
up. This has only happened to me with this new version. It never happened when I
was using 0.8

The link given is to a screenshot.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
I dont know if this is reproducable but this is how I beleive I did it.

1. Move RSS folders into subfolders in the folder pain within thunderbird
2. Close Thunderbird
3. Reopen Thunderbird and several randomly numbered folders will be displayed.

Expected Results:  
There should not be any of these random folders.
Screenshot of the bug being discussed.
I have this same bug. 

For some odd reason this seems to occur only with my BBC feeds. Today with these

The feeds work fine but the names keep changing at random intervals even though
I change them back with Rename.

I have Thunderbird 1.0 and Fedora Core 3 Linux on Intel so OS should be changed
to "All".
