[Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100325 Shredder/3.0.5pre] (nightly)

I tried "thunderbird -P testprofile -migration".

"Netscape 4.x" lists my NS 4.x profile :-)

"Netscape 6, 7, Mozilla 1.x and SeaMonkey" lists my SM 2.x profiles only.
There's no way I can select my SM 1.x profiles :-(

I don't think SM 2.x profiles should hide SM 1.x ones.

(I don't think this is bug 384615, is it?)

***

Additionally, I would suggest to split this into two options:
*"Netscape 6, 7, Mozilla 1.x and SeaMonkey 1.x"
*"SeaMonkey 2.x" (and whatever other apps which use the same kind of profiles)
Though l10n freeze probably makes that possible on TB 3.1+ only :-/

Ftr, I would want to be able to do this to compare/QA the migration result/issues between SM 2.0+ and TB 3.0+.
Yet, mixed SM 1.x and 2.x profiles could be a real-life case: I mean if someone actually intended to migrate from SeaMonkey to Thunderbird ;->

Same on trunk(s).

Summary: TB 3.0 migration from SM 1.x: lists SM 2.x profiles only → TB 3.x migration from SM 1.x: lists SM 2.x profiles only
We wouldn't hold Tb 3.1 for this.

I don't think this issue is enough to have wanted status. Whilst some users may have older profiles, I think the typical case is that users will want to migrate across their latest profile to Thunderbird, and its probably going to be just a few advanced users that want to do the weird cases.

This doesn't fit into wontfix, and I don't think it is wanted - I just wouldn't flag it as a semi-priority above all the other bugs that we have.
