This is similar in steps to reproduce as for bug 514177:

 * tab bar is hidden when only one tab is present;
 * tabs open in background, don't switch to new tab;
 * unthreaded view.

 1. Active tab has a three-pane view, no message selected;
 2. right-click on any message and select "Open in New Tab"
 3. selected message opens in new tab but is not switched to
    (at this point highlighted message sometimes switches);
 4. close the new tab from the context menu;
 5. thread pane in active tab blanks;
 6. leave and reenter folder, message list reappears.

Note that this only happens when closing the tab to the right; if the current tab is, e.g., the 2nd, the new message opens in the 3rd, closing the 1st to the left does not blank the message list.

Perhaps related to TB bug 513654?
Wanting this for 2.0(.x) for sure, but not blocking on it.

Closing tabs which have never been shown will clean out the wrong view. 
We mustn't do that.
