I have 2 accounts and the local folder, each one mapped out of the global inbox. It's the directory, the 10.x.x.x directory and the Local Folders directory all under ~/.thunderbird/default/<id>/Mail.
When I try to create a new account *out of the global inbox*, I mean, with a directory like the others, a) it does not show the name of the new account on the account tree, but show it's icon and b) it does not creates the directory under that three. 

I tried all the option I could and then edited the prefs.js (I know, there's a warning there about this) and inserted:

user_pref("", "/home/taq/.thunderbird/default/rnha60iu.slt/Mail/chewbacca");

there, and started Thunderbird again and now everything is working. Seems that all the other properties were there, but not the directory.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new account after creates 2 other ones
2. Check the /home/<user>/.thunderbird/default/<id>/Mail to see it the new directory is there

Actual Results:  
Show a no-named account on the account three and don't get it's messages.

Expected Results:  
Act like any other previous acccount created.
Reporter, does the issue still occur in the latest supported 2.0.0.x / Shredder trunk nightlies?

(1.5.0.x is now end-of-life and the latest supported 2.0.0.x is
