   I am now running thunderbird 14.0 and no longer have the problem - even with max-connections=5
I am using IMAP with one account with 514 folders and 614 filters
~/.thunderbird/mail/ImapMail/mail.connect.uwaterloo.ca$ find . -type f | grep "\.msf$" | wc
    514     921   26878
~/.thunderbird/mail/ImapMail/mail.connect.uwaterloo.ca$ grep "^name=" msgFilterRules.dat  | wc
    650    1142   12952

Here is my current memory usage - note that it is great!
  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
