4) Click on "Mail" on the Mode Toolbar
5) Switch to another program that's running on the computer
6) Switch back to Thunderbird

First, Thunderbird has incorrectly switched from Mail Mode to Calendar Mode.

Second, Calendar Mode is now incorrectly showing week view instead of month view.

Third, the Mode Toolbar incorrectly says that I'm still in Mail Mode.

Confirming with a current nightly. The first two steps are not necessary to reproduce this bug, but it's indeed necessary to have the focus set to the calendar list.

I can no longer reproduce this bug. If this should indeed be the case, I assume that this has been fixed by the patch for bug 388405. The above mentioned reproduction steps indicate that the calendar list probably had the focus when switching  to Thunderbird which seems to somehow having caused the unwanted mode switch. But this is just me speculating why it can no longer being reproduced. Can anybody else confirm?
