after a while of using it, TB hangs in the following way:
I cannot open new windows, send, receive or look ant the content of folders.
I can see the content of previous open folders (are they cached somewhere?) but
those not touched in this session are not displayed. 
That state remained unchanged for 15 minutes which is the longest my patience
When I exit TB after that hangup, the process "thunderbird.exe" remains in the
Taskmanager. I have to stop that process before I can open that profile again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Thunderbird
2.use it for a couple of minutes, composing mail, reading mail, looking at folders
the actions seem not to be of relevance, it does not matter, if or not I check
mail, open IMAP-folders, compose or just read mails.
Actual Results:  
nothing happens anymore

Expected Results:  
executed the command (i.e. send mail, open compose window, open folder, open mail)

I have installed as well: 
Mozilla Firefox 1.0
Mozilla Sunbird 0.2(? the version of 2 month ago)
I Updated my Windows2000 three days ago
