User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/6.0.466.0 Safari/534.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; it; rv: Gecko/20100608 Thunderbird/3.1

When using SI_PKCS11.dll smartcard module, if I exit Thunderbird with a smartcard in, I have to remove it to let thunderbird.exe process terminate (otherwise, on next start it says it's already running)

If I exit Thunderbird without any smartcard inserted, I have to insert and then remove one, to let thunderbird.exe terminate.

No high cpu usage is noticed, no imap or pop3 connections.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load SI_PKCS11.dll
2.Restart app
3.Close app
4.Thunderbird.exe still showing in task manager
5.Insert a smart card
6.Remove it
7.Thundebird.exe is gone

Yes it is also the case with Firefox 4.0b1.

I noticed that you can insert and then remove anything from the card reader to resolve the issue, I mean that it doesn't have to be a smart card and you con't have to authenticate. You can use anything that fits in the slot.

I found someone else with the same issue, I'm sorry it's in italian, anyway it depicts the same situation.

So it seems to be like this since 2007.

Hi, unfortunately I don't have the possibility to test this because I don't have the same setup anymore.

Ok - thanks for the update. I'll resolve this WORKSFORME for now, unless someone can reproduce the issue.
