Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

When I open preferences I get the following error

XML Parsing Error: syntax error
Location: chrome://messenger/content/preferences/preferences.xul
Line Number 1, Column 1:t != gDefaultPort.value))

I recent upgraded to Ibex Ibin from Hardy Heron and am running..

WTF.. just clicking on Help -> About Mozilla Thunderbird got me this
error

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: chrome://messenger/content/aboutDialog.xul
Line Number 1, Column 6:    </hbox>

I restarted thunderbird and all is well.. It stated that it was adding the "Hebrew" addon. I think perhaps it was becuase there was an upgrade and the app just needed a reload. I think you should incorporate at least a reminder for restarting thunderbird, or sig term it and restart it yourselves after an upgrade. Another thing you can do is send a HUP signal and have it behave like apache where it seemlessly reloads the config and continues to operate.. Then agian the apache model is far different than this.

Thanks,
Carl.
