I hav a question on this case. Why does this "Already running" dialog
even exist?

In my opinion Thunderbird should all time automatic open the existing application. I do not know any other application with this nonsense Dialogs. What user would be interested in such a detail if the app already run or not. In all cases a normal user inter act with thunderbird I personally know no situation where this error shows a good information.
 *  If the Thunderbird app already run do something in thunderbird.
 *  If thunderbird do not run start it and than do something in tunderbird.
 *  If there is a case that Thunderbird do not react on a call say something like: 
  "Thunderbird do not answer. Should I kill it and start a new one. If you wish check yourself leaf this dialog open. It will disappear the moment thunderbird do answer."
