Since we don't expose tree cell accessibles in the meantime and expose tree row accessibles only then we should return coordinates and size of tree row, not of key cell of tree row.
Initially MSAA's specific GetBounds has been introduced in checkin (http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsview2.cgi?diff_mode=context&whitespace_mode=show&root=/cvsroot&subdir=mozilla/accessible/src/msaa&command=DIFF_FRAMESET&file=nsXULTreeAccessibleWrap.cpp&rev2=1.3&rev1=1.2) that is refereed to bug 286029 whose patch doesn't contain these lines. So there is no infromation this behaviour was intentional. So I think it's worth to fix it as it was suggested in bug description.

Comment on attachment 375796 [details] [diff] [review] patch2 Windows-specific fix for exposing the rectangle making up a single treeview item. Primarily needed for the Thunderbird 3 message list so screen readers can see the whole rectangle that a single message item makes up. Tested manually by both myself and the commercial screen reader vendor reporting the problem.
Attachment #375796 - Flags: approval1.9.1?
Verified fixed using the Bookmarks list in the Organize Bookmarks dialog in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090506 Minefield/3.6a1pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729). The rect now encompasses the whole tree item, not just from the start of the text (about 30 pixels wider).
