** Description changed:

+ NOTE: After upgrade, you must follow the instructions in
+ /usr/share/doc/thunderbird/NEWS.Debian.gz if you were affected.  The
+ upload prevent this issue from occurring in the future.
  WORKAROUND: Remove the .thunderbird (not .mozilla-thunderbird) symlink
  in your home directory and mv .thunderbird.upstream to .thunderbird
  Then create an empty .thunderbird.upstream directory.  Thunderbird
  should launch after that.
  Binary package hint: thunderbird
  After an update involving a GB language pack, Thunderbird will not
  launch at all. I've tried the terminal, Alt+F2 and directly from usr/bin
  with no success. The System Monitor doesn't show any instance of
  Thunderbird running.
  DistroRelease: Ubuntu 10.04
