Works for me on Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20090223 Thunderbird/3.0b2, no warning on the terminal nor any dialog box nor any warnings in the error console when starting with the "-mail" command-line argument.

You can try again with the 3.0 beta 2 (to be released soon if not today), the issue should be gone. That option appears to be redundant anyway given that Thunderbird opens in the mail folder view by default without any argument.
