Andrew >>> Thanks for this.  It looks as though it's about Thunderbird 
logging how it's processing mail via the standard protocols (you select 
the ones you want to monitor).

My problem is that Thunderbird itself is becoming unresponsive from time 
to time (the dreaded darkened window!), and I'm having to do a 'Force 
quit' and restart.  I can't see anything in the system logs;  and I 
wondered if there's a log that monitoring Thunderbird itself, rather 
than just the mail processing.

Or have I got this entirely wrong, and the log you mention is what I need?
