That is obviously not the description of the bug.
It's a description of the rule that Thunderbird is violating.
The bug is described in

Do you need any other shot than the error message I attached in 
Feel free to ask a screenshot of a normally running Thunderbird (before 
the crash) and/or of an empty desktop (after the crash), I can make them.

Do you think the 6 messages like this one in the syslog file excerpt I 
attached are normal?

A bare linefeed is not a nudist fisher but a LF that is not preceded by 
a CR.
In order to find a bare linefeed in the mdnmsg message file I attached, 
you need to look inside the file to find it, for example, by doing this :

$ hd mdnmsg

Once again, if you showed my bug description to a developer, he would 
not ask all those questions but he would make a patch in less than one 
hour.  Almost one year ago.
I hope you're in the believing state now.
And that the bug is in the confirmed state.
Thank you.
