This is true whether running t-bird in linux, or running it from Windows and having the files stored on a samba share on linux. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run Thunderbird from linux, or from a Windows computer where the Thunderbird files are stored on a Samba share on linux (tested with Samba 2.2.8a and Windows XP). 2. Create a folder (or re-name an existing folder) whose name begins with "." -- something like "...HIDE ME..." will work. 3. Close Thunderbird and restart. Actual Results: The newly created folder will no longer be visible. Expected Results: The newly created folder would still be visible.
This same symptom occurs for folders on Windows -- is this not a dupe of bug 229522?
