removed account stays in "Recent" folder view (until I switched views)

I'm using tbird version 2 alpha 1 (20060908) on mac os x

steps to reproduce:

1)  start in "all folders" view 
2)  and an imap account
3)  select the inbox of the new imap account
4)  switch to the "recent" folders view
5)  using Tools | Account Settings, delete the imap account

expected results:  the inbox for the deleted account should disappear

actual results:  the inbox stays until I cycle through.

note, I haven't tried the other folder views.  (My guess is that "all" will do the right thing, but perhaps favorite and unread will not?)
I actually did:

4a) switch to the "recent" folders view
4b) select another folder
5)  using Tools | Account Settings, delete the imap account

Deleted folders or subfolders also stay in the Recent Folders and Favorite Folders views until the view is switched and switched back. Seems to require a folder list refresh after using the delete folder context menu (right-click) or using the File > Delete Folder menu item.

For consistency a Folder should also be removed from the Favorite Folder view when the a Favorite Folder is "unfavorited" either from the context menu or Edit > unselect Favorite Folder menu.

Tested on Thunderbird 3.0b4 on Mac OS X 10.5.8, but I suspect also present on other platforms.

Steps to reproduce:

 1) Start in All Folders view
 2) Right-click on an existing account and choose New Folder...
 3) Enter a name for the folder (e.g., test-folder)
 4) Copy any message into test-folder using right-click on message > Copy To > Recent > test-folder
 5) Change view to Recent Folders
 6) Select test-folder
 7) Delete test-folder using right-click on folder name and select Delete
 8) Confirm folder deletion dialog (no change to Recent Folders view)
 9) Navigate to different view (e.g., View > Folders > All)
10) Navigate back to Recent Folders view (test-folder is no longer listed)

I can't see this with Favorite Folders. Deleted folder vanishes correctly.
I can see some errors with Recent Folders, due to which the folder is not removed from view:

But the folder is deleted and toggling the folder mode shows it is gone.

The original issue with removing a whole account is still valid. The folder name vanishes from the Recent view, but the row with folder icon still shows and causes errors:
