version 3.0a1pre (2007071705) local folders, empty trash followed by rebuild index (not compact) restores trash
hmm, and then neither empty trash nor compact work, until thunderbird restarted.
can you try a more recent build, since I did checkin a fix for bug 383962 on 7/20? Thx!
tested with 20070721. same procedure. trash is still gone after rebuild, and there is no windows file. But TB crashes within a few seconds of rebuild+OK. No talkback or breakpad data.
and crashed again on 1st startup. 2nd startup successful
crash must have been different issue. duping
