Public bug reported:

After noticing it on a bona-fide crash, I was able to reproduce this as

1. Run thunderbird
2. "killall -SIGSEGV thunderbird-bin"
3. Don't report this (faked) crash; but click "restart thunderbird".

It didn't work for me; I had to restart Thunderbird manually.  No great
hardship, just a bit annoying that it doesn't do what it said it would.
