Every now and then my Thunderbird is unable to save any sent messages to the
Sent folder (sent emails should be placed in the "Sent" folder among the "Local
Folders) and once I've got that with one email (the only thing to do is cancel
the attempt) I then have to restart Thunderbird for it to be able to save them
This is a problem that I've been having with several versions of Thunderbird.

I've so far not been able to find out what to do to reproduce the problem as it
normally works fine.

Reproducible: Sometimes

I can confirm the exact same thing happens on my SUSE9 linux machine. 
After using thunderbird 0.8 and 0.5 for some time (perhaps 10 hours) messages
stop getting sent to the sent folder. I have to restart thunderbird to get
messages to be sent properly to the sent folder again. Between working and not
working it seems to randomly send some messages to sent and not others. 

The message goes through the process of sending, connecting to server,
delivering and then sticks on "copying to sent folder" during this time the CPU
usage jumps way up and stays up. This can stay on screen for up to 15min or
longer, I cancel "sending" the message when I see its not getting copied. If I
wait long enough I do get a message saying "copy to sent failed"

Yep.  It happens to me with Thunderbird 1.0, Windows XP SP2, running IMAP
against courier imap and qmail on rh9
