Ok, reading through other bugs (64614) I noticed that some people have problems with assistive technologies and thunderbird.

I went to System -> Preferences -> Accessibility -> Assistive Technology
Preferences and unchecked 'enable assistive technologies'.

As soon as I did that (no restart of gdm or anything) thunderbird worked
again fine without me needing to run it as root.

To test I shut thunderbird, and went back to the same menu and re-
enabled it, trying thunderbird again and it wouldn't start again.  Going
back and disabling assistive technologies and instantly it is able to
start up without problems.

Hurrah!  Ok, a problem for those who need the assistive technologies,
but I don't even remember when I turned them on.
