The bullets need to be reversed in the closed state, see the screenshot attached.
If there aren't dupes of this in Thunderbird, where it's a constantly visible glaring mistake, there certainly should be.
So, chrome://global/skin/tree.css references chrome://global/skin/tree/twisty-clsd.gif and chrome://global/skin/tree/twisty-open.gif <,321#309>, but I can't seem to find them anywhere in the pinstripe directories...
Markus, do the twisty icons come from the -moz-appearance treetwisty and treetwistyopen?  If so, then I might not be able to provide a useful patch here because I'm not familiar with native Mac OS X API and I don't have a Mac to test this on...

OK, I spoke too soon.  I have not tested this, but I think it should fix the problem.

Patch (v1) (doesn't work)

It looks like the documentation is lying... your patch doesn't fix the problem, unfortunately. kThemeDisclosureLeft doesn't change anything.

A Google search for kThemeDisclosureLeft turns up, which is a patch for OpenOffice that draws left-pointing twisties manually. I'm not sure if it's worth doing that.

These list-style-image styles can probably be removed.
Oh, that's sad.  This way the tree controls look broken on RTL locales.  Could we not use -moz-appearance for RTL locales and just stick our own image instead?
Yeah, that's probably a better idea.
Are you willing to take this?  I can't really come up with something useful as I'm unable to test my changes... :/
Is anybody working on this?  I'm happy to provide testing.  This is a major issue for thunderbird.  Probably too late for thunderbird3, but perhaps it could be fixed for 3.1.
The changes to the native theme drawing code I made in bug 514745 should make this considerably easier. I'll put this bug on my list.

Attached patch v1Splinter Review
- use RenderTransformedHIThemeControl in DrawButton, where tree disclosure
   triangles and tree header cells (bug 492249) are drawn
 - therefore, RenderTransformedHIThemeControl is moved further up, and changed
   in the following ways:
    - a render rect is passed to the render callback because HIThemeDrawButton
      wants it
    - the buffer is extended to account for focus rings
    - the buffer is no longer filled with red (oops)
