[Bug 559312] thunderbird corrupts mail indices (Old mail marked as new)

For the last 24hrs all my mail state (read/unread, all tags) have
been completely destroyed. DO NOT upgrade to version 3.0.1!!!

Most of us really take pride in making sure what we push out to
the community has been tested and will not be disruptive
or destructive. Then there a small group of people that simply
don't give a damn what they push out or the havoc they cause.
This makes the *entire* community look like crap... 

My goal here is twofold. One alert everyone that your mail will
be destroyed if you upgrade to 3.0.1 and to shine light on 
shoddy work in hopes they will take pride in one, fixing the
problem ASAP and two change their process so things like
stop happen...

IMHO... events like this is the reason why Linux (Fedora explicitly) 
is having such a hard time being accepted the mainstream....
