After sending a message, the "Sending Message" dialog box shows the progress of send.  When copying message to sent file the dialog box sometimes fails to close when copy is complete.  The progress bar indicates the copy is complete but the dialog box never closes.  It must be closed manually.  I cannot duplicate the problem - it happens randomly but appears to happen more often when I have written a long message.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Can't reproduce - happens randomly
Actual Results:  
Dialog box that tracks the sending of a message and the copying to the Sent folder fails to close

Expected Results:  
Expected it to close
This is happening again.

For what it's worth. I am also recently experiencing this behaviour in Thunderbird
(Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2008012603 Thunderbird/3.0a1pre ID:2008012603)
I can reproduce this error 100% on Thunderbird 3.0 Alpha
Mail Account is IMAP type (not sure if this makes any difference)
1. Compose a new mail
   specify mail address, type some subject and put some body
2. Send message

Changes: In 3.0 alpha, the message box disappears after 1-1.5 minutes.

Ever confirmed: true
Confirmed independently by developers on Vista, Linux, and Mac for both trunk Thunderbird and Seamonkey builds -> definitely not tied to a specific OS/Platform.

in vista thunderbird version 3.0a1pre (2008022003) - it is sufficient to hover over the dialog and it goes away in ~5sec

works version 3.0a1pre (2008011503)
fails version 3.0a1pre (2008011603)
wonder who?

amending comment 5, goes away in ~5sec if one _moves_ mouse around in dialog.
(reminds me of another bug from some time ago which I can't remember)
Keywords: regression
bug 413200 documents the trunk regression issue.

bug reporter's email address is dead and no other reports of this problem so this bug should probably be closed incomplete - perhaps was a server issue - unless someone wants to morph this bug.
problem gone?
(seems to be for me)
Cured for me also.
=> WFM then.  Let's hope it's also working for Diane on seamonkey
