Build Identifier: version (20090812)

Macbook Air 1.86 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 
MAC OS 10.5.8 
Thunderbird version (20090812)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select reply or write 
2. start entering address in address box
3. after 2-3 letters entered it selects one address from library and freezes.

Actual Results:  
 it selects address based on first couple of letters, then freezes showing address get loaded into box from library, then address box freezes with spinning multicolor disc for a couple of seconds, then unfreezes showing multiple choices for the address, then freezes again on selected desired address, then shows multicolor spinning disc for a couple of seconds: The freeze unfreeze sequence is repeated for every address manually entered into the email address box. 

Expected Results:  
when I start entering the address into the address box, addresses should be listed that match the first several letters to allow me to select the one I want to use.

Was working fine, and as best I can recall the problem occurred after an update of the OS or Thunderbird, not sure which as I update as soon as the updates are released.
Does this problem also happen with Thunderbird 3.0.1?

When did you update to (It was released nearly six months ago and should have been made available for updating almost at once.) This could narrow it down to a problem in OS X, or at any rate an unexpected incompatibility with the updates.
