I also and still have this problem and it is easy to reproduce.
I have set in the preferences that a message forwarded will be attached to the new message.

I create a new message (test1) and save the message without sending.
I right click on the saved message and selected forward.
In the new message the first message is attached.
When opening the attached message there is nothing displayed.

Even more strange:
I saved the second message, closed and reopend it.
The first message was still attached but double clicking it asked me to open it with the web browser or to save it.
I saved to disk and reopened the created eml file (nsmail.eml) with thunderbird.
There was some HTML in the message (see attachment)!

Now I had to set my Thunderbird to embed and not to attach forwarded messages.
I am using Thunderbird Version (20090817) on Ubuntu 9.04, all Updates are installed.

** Attachment added: "the created eml files from this test"
