Gene, you do not use the standard kernel, if I've read you right in the 
past. It's not impossible that your kernel doesn't get all the attention 
that a stock kernel enjoys and that there is a burp in the barrel? 
And/or 12.04 has problems with it that you didn't have with 10.04?  It's 
worth considering. It would be interesting to see if Thunderbird has the 
same problems. It's all I use now. Ric
