For those with initiative, this bug is fixed in the Penelope hg source code
depot: <http://hg.mozilla.org/penelope/rev/05812a9a095a>.

Otherwise you'll have to wait until the next release, Eudora 8 beta 8/Penelope

I'd like to see if this works -- I don't see how the changes in 05812a9a095a could make "Command-D" work, when 8.0b7 already had:

In 8.0b7, pressing "Command-D" makes the Message menu highlight/unhighlight, but does not delete the message (this is in a 2-pane view, with the message to be deleted selected in the open "Inbox" window).  The actual Message->Delete menu selection does work.

How do I "enable" the penelope extension (0.5a5) with Thunderbird 3.1a1pre ?  It (Shredder) says Penelope's not compatible and disables it.  I installed the Compatibility Reporter which -- according to documentation -- is _supposed_ to allow you to enable/use "incompatible" extensions -- but it doesn't (or I haven't figured out how to do it).

Is making Penelope "compatible" a simple matter of changing the "minVersion"/"maxVersion" strings in 'install.rdf' ?   How are the "min" and "max" compared to the actual ?  'install.rdf' for Penelope 0.5a5 has a "min" of '3.0b4' and a "max" of '3.0'; a strict lexicographical comparison would say that '3.0b4' is "greater than" '3.0'....

Should Penelope 0.5a5 _work_ with TBird 3.1a1pre ?
