I installed Thunderbird 1.0 over 0.9.

Then I removed 0.9 via control panel.

Result: The start menu section of Thunderbird was gone (for all users).

Solution: Re-install TB 1.0.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I installed Thunderbird 1.0 over 0.9.
2. I removed 0.9 via control panel.

Actual Results:  
The start menu section of Thunderbird was gone (for all users).

Expected Results:  
Leave untouched all that belongs to TB 1.0.

The problem can be solved by re-installing TB 1.0.

While this is an easy fix, the average user might not think of it (and lead to a
bad reputation for TB right from the start).
