I intentionally leave out the account-manager service in _ensureInitialized() because that is covered in bug 749200.

I'm not sure where SeaMonkey uses this but I did track down one use in the New Folder dialog.

Unfortunately there were a number of JavaScript exceptions in the Error Console that may or may not have been responsible for the accounts being duplicated.
Comment 3 :aceman 2012-10-21 14:16:15 PDT
It is also used in the Account manager for the folder targets (junk/copies/archive).

But I didn't understand what the problem is you see. What is being duplicated and what are the exceptions?

Ian, can you please try in Seamonkey if you also see Neil's problems?

I see this too in the new folder dialog.
1/ Right click on account name / folder name
2/ Select New Folder/Subfolder
3/ New Folder dialog appears
4/ Account name / folder name appears in the "Create as a subfolder of:" picker
5/ Click on the picker

Actual result
1/ Two entries for account name

Expected result
1/ One entry for account name

If you click on one of the arrows to expand the subfolders under the account name, even more menu items appear in the main drop down.
Each time you click on the drop down you get more menu items appearing in the list.

I attach some screenshots to demonstrate.

patch v2

I can see the problem in that dialog. I forgot some occurrences of 'this.' before MailServices. I wonder why it worked at all other places I tested. Probably those places were already importing mailServices globally.

This should be better.
