The windowblinds software allows to skin Windows, and is normally loaded at
startup and unloaded before shutdown, but if the skin is manually unloaded, both
Firefox and Thunderbird crash. These are the only programs that crash during
skin unload, others like Gaim and pgAdmin, and commercial programs accept the
skin unload without problems.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Windowblinds
2. Open Firefox and/or Thunderbird
3. Unload Windowblinds

Actual Results:  
Firefox and Thunderbird crashed

Expected Results:  
Remain stable

Windowblinds is a product from Object Desktop
( commercialised by Stardock. It has a
free version for windows, with which I have experienced the problems.
