I know that its quick and you did a lot of work already ... thanks for
that. I am trapped in the same time-constraint stuff, as I have to
rename thunderbird and do more sarge work before I leave on Oct 13.

I think we can get an exception if we don't make it this weekend, but
it should be our goal to get something worth uploading that is from
the same branch as ffox and thunderbird.

What patches do you refer to? If you adapted those that mike
provided, the original ones should apply cleanly for 1.0.5 right away.

Its not about 1.1 not being stable from a general user-point of view,
but that there will likely be huge stability fixes in the first minor
releases we would be sad not get into etch. Anyway, lets wait for
Mike and/or Erics opinion on this.

Yes, but those are rarely the problem, because they are supported
