Critical flaw in 1.5.0.8 - mail disappears.

Upgrading from 1.5.0.7 to 1.5.0.8 causes Inbox to show no mail previously received.  Thunderbird shows Inbox as if it has no mail, but is not in any other folder.  I tried deleting all .msf files and restarting, when it rebuilds the .msf files the Inbox still shows empty.  Tried compacting too.  

If I run a mbox reader on the Inbox file such as http://sourceforge.net/projects/mbox-viewer/ the old mail appears in the mbox-viewer program just fine, so the mail hasn't really been deleted, it just appears that way in Thunderbird 1.5.0.8.

One user says that downgrading and rebuilding the .msf with 1.5.0.7 will fix, I would try that but am afraid that if 1.5.0.8 was security fix related by PC will be vulnerable.


Reproducible: Didn't try
On the link mentioned there are other users with the same frustration.
