Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.5) Gecko/20060726 Red Hat/1.5.0.5-0.el4.1 Firefox/1.5.0.5 pango-text
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.5) Gecko/20060726 Red Hat/1.5.0.5-0.el4.1 Firefox/1.5.0.5 pango-text

After updated Thunderbird to version 1.5.0.5 via RHEL4's up2date command I can no longer rename mail folders. Existing folders (prior to upgrade) or newly created folders act the same. This looks familiar to Bug#306343 but in this case it is on Linux not Windows. The status of Bug#306343 is unconfirmed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on folder
2. Choose "Rename Folder" from the options presented
3. Rename folder and press "OK"

Actual Results:  
1. The emails in the current folder view disappear from the display and the rename dialog box stays up with no rename in effect. Hitting "OK" over and over again does nothing.
2. The only way to get rid of the rename dialog box is to hit cancel.
3. End result is that folder name was not changed.
4. Clicking on a mail folder brings back the messages in the folder. (Bring back meaning I can see them again. See step #1)

Expected Results:  
Rename of the folder. For example rename shipit to ShipIT.

My desktop is pretty vanilla. Running RHEL4 U3 with the lastest patches and all Errata up to date. Running under GNOME. Installed SeaMonkey last week. The easy work around is to just create a new folder with the correct name and delete the old folder with wrong name.

After a reboot the problem has gone away.
