I keep my trash sorted by date, descending, grouped by sort. It provides group
headers, "Today", "Yesterday", "Last week", "Two weeks ago", and "Old mail".
When I keep Mozilla running for a couple of days or several sleep and wake
cycles, these headings become corrupted/garbled and the message list pane
displays these headers as ????, or blank, or other random-seeming characters
instead of the categories noted above. The plus-sign indicating the header is
still there. Functionality seems normal. Display damaged. This has been
happening for a while now -- probably since 1.6 or earlier.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Mail/News, check mail etc., sort folder by date and group by sort
2.Sleep system twice or more
3.Re-open mail/news and look at sorted folder

Actual Results:  
Sort headers display garbage text or no text

Expected Results:  
Sort headers should display proper strings. 

I can upload a screen capture if desired.
