Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird version 1.0.2 (20050317)

Opening thunderbird twice rapidly from the executable or shortcut causes
everything in all three panes to disappear.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. double-click the thunderbird icon or executable twice, in succession, rapidly
(so quickly double-click it twice)
Actual Results:  
All information in the three panes disappeared.  Upon closing and reopening
thunderbird, everything is restored.  See the posted URL for a screenshot.

Expected Results:  
Thunderbird should've opened normally, with the information retained in the
three panes.

Theme: Default
Crash ID: N/A
Configuration: Windows XP home SP1, P4 2.8 GhZ, 1GB RAM.  I can provide more
information on request if required.

There is no permanent loss of information.  Closing and reopen thunderbird will
make everything visible.  Thunderbird has no problem connecting to the mail
server and retrieving new messages (although they can't be viewed).
