Build Identifier: thunderbird / 1.0

I have several account on my PC, and due to a previous reported bug I can only 
use thunderbird on one of them. Therefore I want to have thunderbird as default 
email client for one windows XP account and outlook express for an other 
windows XP account. This can't be done. ( maybe it's an XP fault?)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set thunderbird as default email client in one windows XP account
2.log on to an other XP account
3.set outlook express as default account
4.log on to the first XP acount
5. reset thunderbird as default email client
