Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

Hi, I'm on Ubuntu 7.10, using Thunderbird (according to dpkg -l thunderbird) or (according to Thunderbird's about dialog or --version command line arg) /  french locale.
When I try to attach some file to an email, I can't send the message or save it as Draft. The "Send" button does not respond nor does the Save as draft command. It happens with any file I try to attach, with or without spaces in path or name, with or without special characters in path or name. Funny, uh?
If I force the closing of the compose window, a dialog comes to ask me if I want to save as draft, send or discard my message. It acts the same way if I use any of them : it discards. 
I've got no problems to send files within messages (images e.g.)
Is it a misconfiguration or a bug? I just can't figure it out. I've checked my configuration...
Thanx by advance for your help!
