User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3

If one enables the "Allow Spotlight to Search Messages" checkbox, Thunderbird now has two distinct download processes (to its own store, and to a Spotlight searchable directory) and has indexing done in to two places (GLODA, and Spotlight). 

The Activity Manager does not reflect this distinction and just says "Indexing" and "Downloading", which appear to be the internal Thunderbird index and download.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enable Spotlight searching
2.Observe Activity Manager
3.
Actual Results:  
"Indexing" and "Downloading" messages appear.

Expected Results:  
Messages more carefully describing the indexing and downloading activity.
