If I try to remove more threads from my box, then the thunderbird3 isn't able
to move them into trash. If I remove f.e. three threads, then it's working.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. set up an IMAP account
1. have many threads from some mailing-list in folder
2. select many of them and click Delete
3. see after a while warning about unresponsive script:
"A script on this page may be busy or it may have stopped responding. You can
stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.
Script: chrome://messenger/content/folderPane.js:1137"
Actual Results:  
It's not possible to remove bigger amount of messages.

Expected Results:  
Delete will be working as it was in previous thunderbird2.

This is two or more bugs mixed in one, I am afraid:

1) only top of the thread message is deleted when key DELETE is pressed on the collapsed thread
2) JS/memory problem

Could you please untangle this and if possible deduplicate it against existing bugs?

how many is many? In nightly builds for the past few weeks, deleting the top level message in a collapsed thread deletes all the messages in the thread, so you haven't been running the latest builds...
