VERSION INFO:
I'm running Thunderbird 3.3a1 ("Miramar") on Ubuntu 10.10
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101116 Thunderbird/3.3a1

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
 1. Start the "new account" wizard
 2. Type in e.g.:
     Name: Foo Bar
     Email address: foobar@mozilla.com
     Password: foobar
    and click "Continue".
 3. Click "Create Account"
    --> It will complain about an invalid username/password -- note that this actually happens **even if they're valid**.
 4. Click "Manual Setup" so that it lets you continue.
 5. Inspect settings of the new account.

ACTUAL RESULTS:
 * "Authentication Method" is "Encrypted Password", both for IMAP and for SMTP server.  This is wrong.
   -- If you try to check email for the account, you'll get a notification saying that the server doesn't support "Encrypted Password"
   -- Similarly, if you try to send an email from this account, you get a similar popup about the SMTP server not supporting encrypted passwords.

EXPECTED RESULTS:
 * Authentication Method for IMAP and SMTP server should be "Normal Password".

One more issue:
 - Unlike the IMAP server, the SMTP server (smtp.mozilla.com) wants your full email address (foobar@mozilla.com) as its login.  But the wizard ends up setting it to just "foobar".  So you won't be able to send email with the default settings.

(Annoyingly, when you try & fail to send an email, it offers you the option of entering a new password -- but not a new username, which is what you really need to change in this case)

EXPECTED RESULTS for this:
 - Mozilla ISP Database should tell Thunderbird to use your full email address as the username for the smtp.mozilla.com SMTP server.

This somehow got fixed at some point.  %EMAILADDRESS% is used, password-cleartext is used.
