In ThunderBird 9 on Windows XP.

When uninstalling an addon, it seems that information regarding that addon is not removed from Sqlite. Seems like this should be cleaned-up.
We clean this up once a day, I think it would make for an awkward API to do it more often.

If you say so Dave. I would have no idea about that. It just seemed that the system must know when the uninstall is complete so it could make the SQL delete call then and be done with it. But I have no idea of the bigger picture.
