And so here's the bug for them. Some more info: The calls are in mailnews/base/content/folderWidgets.xml, in <field name="_listener">'s OnItemAdded and OnItemRemoved methods. Thanks, Blake.
We should check if this is still happening. The folder picker code still does check if this._menu._teardown exists.
