I have my thunderbird stored on a usb stick within a truecrypt partition (including the profile). I forget sometimes(getting less) to plugin the usb stick after hibernation. If now thunderbird crashes it usually destroys the adress book somehow. I couldn't really pin the bug but it happend 4 times in 2 months now. Of course it might happen that one thing or another breaks... but this broke on a constant basis. All other informations( like rss feeds, email accounts, settings, etc. were still available ) were still available! Just the adress book is gone ... completly.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use thunderbird profile on a usb stick
2.Save some adresses
3.a Suddenly disconnect the usb stick
3.b Hibernate the computer, remove the usb stick, boot the computer
3.c Let Thunderbird crash
Actual Results:  
Adress book is gone.

Expected Results:  
Adress book should be able to be restored (from former safed data) if really broken for some reason. More preferable is if it never breaks.

Can you provide crash ID ? (as explained here : http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback)

Does it also happens in safe mode ?
There is no crash id(if the address book crashes, half the computer crashes with it ...).

I didn't try out safe mode.
Oh: Next start is normal, just the address book is gone.
Summary: Adress book lost on sudden shutdown → Address book lost on sudden shutdown
is " I forget sometimes(getting less) to plugin the usb stick after hibernation" a necessary step to cause this?
