With the SM 2 trunk nightly for 20090629, the configured pref to start mail and news on open has quit working - the SM 2 trunk nightly from 20090627 still honored the pref.

Now, a browser window comes up, and you are required to enter the master password, but no mail and news window is started unless I use the bottom-left toolbar button.

Hmm, I'm usually good about reassigning myself the bug when I attach a patch...

In the meantime, invoking "seamonkey -mail" (whether from the command-line or from a desktop icon) will still load only the mail/news client (disregarding any startup preferences, BTW). This is no fix, but we can use it to work around the bug while waiting for a fix.
Indeed it does - thanks!

Just like the old days, before these fancy "prefs". :)

Is this bug why I get the following error too?

Well, one causes the other, yes.
