[Bug 876896] [NEW] Thunderbird quits on start in Xubuntu 11.10

Public bug reported:

I've removed and reinstalled Thunderbird to try to correct this, but it
remains broken.

Immediately after installing Xubuntu 11.10, I was then able to open
Thunderbird, but was unable to import my settings from my Evolution
backup. I installed Evolution, but still could not import into
Thunderbird from Evolution. I followed the instructions here
thunderbird?s=import&as=s to manually copy from Evolution to
Thunderbird, and Thunderbird stopped working after this.

It would open a menu to ask if Thunderbird should be the default email
application and/or a few other functions. And then it would quite every
time. Another user recommended deleting Thunderbird and reinstalling it,
without re-copying the Evolution mailboxes, but the same behavior has
persisted after the reinstall.

Steps to reproduce: I wouldn't recommend this, but follow the
instructions above for importing Evolution settings into Thunderbird,
and see if Thunderbird survives.
