Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3
Build Identifier: version 1.5.0.10 (20070221)

In two successive instances of automatic folder compaction, I have had one specific folder end up stuck in nstmp.  nstmp appears to be locked at the OS level, as I can not delete or rename it until the server is rebooted.  After this happens, I get an error when I exit TBird.  Unfortunately, I do not have the message available now, but it was something like, "The operation could not be completed due to an internal error.".

The TBird client is on XP Pro, and my profile is on a 2003 Server.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Thunderbird normally
2. Let automatic compaction do its thing

Actual Results:  
Local folder is stuck in nstmp, and apparently locked at OS level.


Expected Results:  
Compaction completes transparently.


I can see where this will be difficult to reproduce.  I'm wondering if it's something related to this one particular folder...some kind of corruption in the mail file or something.
