This is what I get When I start it from the Terminal :

Oulan:~ ludo$ /Applications/Daily.app/Contents/MacOS/thunderbird

Sounds like a building foul-up...

I've seen the same for SeaMonkey on Linux, and yesterday's build worked.
From looking at SeaMonkey tinderbox, I expect that the failure happened in this range: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=bb4d68b03164&tochange=c652c39732f8

Adding Callek after seeing that mconley seems to have nailed it to packaging miss of bug 779997 on IRC - SeaMonkey will need the packaging fix as well, I guess.
Seeing this on Linux as well.

Packaging fix

Ok, so I'm pretty sure this is all we need.

Unfortunately, I couldn't seem to reproduce the start-up failure on my local build, so I couldn't see if this actually fixed the problem. Weird, I know.

Anyhow, I'm pretty sure this is the fix we need.

I can't see anything else we should need; r+ as long as the try build works.

This seems to have been pushed, mike any reasons you had *not* to close the bug ?
I ran the latest tinderbox build after you pushed and everything is fine now for me! Thanks Mike!

Was just waiting for confirmation that we were back in business. Woo!
