Well you can have a look at /var/messages .

Would be very nice if you could come up with some reproducible steps. Without these there isn't much we can do to fix the issue.

I'm going to set a date  for us to close this bug as incomplete. I'll set it to mid-january - that gives you plenty of time to try to reproduce. (There's no gain in keeping a bug open, when we can't make the product better out of it.)

I am getting a very similar issue on Windows XP with Thunderbird 3.  If the notebook suspends, and you resume thunderbird, does not send or receive email at all.  Secondly when you try to close thunderbird, it will not shutdown gracefully, it must be killed, through the task manager.
This also happens with Vista 64bit
I was able to do a dump in vista, which will be attached.
Bug 213637 -  Mozilla runs at ~100% cpu usage after network connection is interrupted, changing network/LAN, switching from wireless to non-wireless, undocking - was the last big fixed bug that comes to mind.  But if you are seeing problems ...

 Bug 465204 -send message after failed network connection, manual retry by itself doesn't work -- offline/online is necessary
 Bug 433199 -  After resuming from hibernate, browsers acts like there's no network connection
