User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20091208 Minefield/3.7a1pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20091208 Lightning/1.0pre Shredder/3.1a1pre

After reproducing, the message body strangely covers the Today pane when Shredder client width is sized small enough.  See screenshot.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Today Pane on Inbox
2. Set the client width to be small enough that things are cramped (in Vertical view)
3. Open a message (by double clicking) in a new tab.
4. click back to the Inbox.

upper right corner--look at the mini-month calendar and see how the message body overlaps.

also duplicated with:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20091208 Lightning/1.1a1pre Shredder/3.1a1pre
Do you have the issue when you start thunderbird in -safe-mode (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode) ?

Any messages in Tools -> Error console ?

After updating to the latest nightly:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20091210 Lightning/1.1a1pre Shredder/3.1a1pre
the problem has more or less been resolved.  (When switching tabs, it's still overlapping for a second, but then the message body narrows to fit in the proper boundaries.  It's visually jarring, but functional)

Before I upgraded, I had the following to report (on the build in comment #2)....

If I put it in -safe-mode there's no 'Today Pane' but I duplicated it with all other extensions disabled.
On startup, there are four messages in the error console.  I'm pasting them here:

Error: [Exception... "'JavaScript component does not have a method named: "asyncPromptAuth"' when calling method: [nsIAuthPrompt2::asyncPromptAuth]"  nsresult: "0x80570030 (NS_ERROR_XPC_JSOBJECT_HAS_NO_FUNCTION_NAMED)"  location: "<unknown>"  data: no]

I take it back.  behavior is even weirder.  

Trying to find a pattern, but SOME messages (possibly all from the same sender (bugzilla.mozzila.org as it happens)) are fixed.  But when I switch to another message in the inbox, the overlapping comes back.

My current inbox has a bugzilla.mozzila.org message as the top (last by date) message at the moment, if that's relevant.

I tried a restart.  The problem remains.  It seems to stay true even after bugzilla.mozilla.org is not the first/top message.

Since this bug is "unconfirmed" perhaps it would be helpful if I mentioned that I have the same behavior.

In my case, I'm pretty sure it happens when an HTML message has a fixed width, and that width is wider than the preview window.
