Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: mozilla-thunderbird

I am on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper). Linux localhost 2.6.15-28-686 #1 SMP
PREEMPT Thu Feb 1 16:14:07 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux. Gnome.

I updated my system on 2 March 2007 to thunderbird (20070104). I
also updated to the latest of all the available packages.

I connect to my IMAP folder, and try to forward emails from a folder of
my inbox, i.e. Inbox.temp folder.

I can open the email fine. 
If I try to forward it, my CPU maxes out, and thunderbird hangs.
This happens when I forward the email directly without opening it, also.
This also happens when I start thunderbird in safe mode (mozilla-thunderbird -safe-mode)
I have to kill thunderbird in order to get my system back.

This was not a problem at all until the last upgrade.

** Affects: mozilla-thunderbird (Ubuntu)
