I originally thought this was a Windows bug, but I confirmed the same behavior running Thunderbird 1.5 on Fedora 5.  If you have a profile open, then running thunderbird -ProfileManager or thunderbird -P <profile> just brings the currently running profile to focus.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up a profile in TB
2. Run thunderbird -ProfileManager


Actual Results:  
The focus was brought to the first profile opened.  The profile manager was never opened.

Expected Results:  
I expected to get the profile manager, so I could run two separate copies of TB.  I've been doing this for some time in 1.0.
You need to set the MOZ_NO_REMOTE environment variable. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Setting_up_extension_development_environment#Development_profile for more information.
