Build Identifier: Thunderbird version (20090825)

I installed Thunderbird on Fedora 10 with "yum install thunderbird".  I set up a corporate IMAP email account.  I installed "Lightning 0.9" with the "Tools->Add-ons" feature at my boss's request.  I clicked on "invitations" to bring in the two meeting requests he had sent me, which causes Lightning to look for requests indefinitely and spin the cursor, even after being cancelled.  The only view available is "Day"; pressing the "Week" and "Month" view buttons does nothing.  When new mail arrived I noticed it wasn't filtered into my folders accordingly, which is when I noticed the filters were gone.  I disabled and uninstalled Lightning and restarted Thunderbird and the filters didn't come back.  I then created a filter and reinstalled Lightning and noticed the exact behavior, so I uninstalled Lightning, searched for similar bugs, then filed this report.

Not sure at this point whether to try with an older Thunderbird or just switch to Evolution.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Thunderbird on Fedora 10
2.Create one or more incoming message filters (my email account is IMAP, fwiw)
3.Install Lightning 0.9

Machine is an 8 core i686 with 4G memory, fwiw.
Did you installed all required packages before installing Lightning? The Lightning package from will not work correctly if e.g. libstdc++5 is missing. <>
Pete, did it work after correct installation?
