Bug#534877: icedove: Password viewer freaks after adding LDAP directory password

Package: icedove
Severity: normal

Sequence of events:

1) Successfully view the passwords via the password viewer.
2) Add an LDAP directory password to the password manager via a password request
3) An LDAP search on a name successfully displays info.
4) And again on a different name, and so on.
5) Opening the password viewer again (sometimes now) flashes the password view 
   and then disappears. (Once it starts flashing, it never works again until 
   fix in step 11 below.)
6) Quit out of icedove.
7) Start icedove.
8) Password viewer now just flashes the view regardless of whether it did or
   did not flash it in step 5.
9) An LDAP directory search requests the password again, which can be "stored"
   again for further searches. An additional entry is stored in the .s file.
10) Quit out of icedove.
11) Remove LDAP entries from the .s file.
12) Start icedove.
13) Password viewer now displays passwords (minus the LDAP entries deleted) okay.

Incidental behavior which may not be relevant: the LDAP view does not display the 
whole directory only the results of a search. Is this a wish item or should it 
indeed pull down the whole directory. Tying to pull down the directory via the
download button in the offline tab never succeeds.
