paying a price (doing a query, building up results) for the personal toolbar, even if it is hidden

I found this while trying to track down some leaks for bug #387203.

need to investigate.
maybe should only init if toolbar is visible, hook into it's load/show event?

also, probably shouldn't init the places folder queries either until this happens.
updated link:

this is still true, even if the toolbar is hidden the place property gets set and the result is populated.
Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h".

In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows:
Tools | Message Filters
Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New"
Conditions: Body   contains   places-to-b-and-h
Change the action to "Delete Message".
Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top.
Click OK.

Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter.
