Thunderbird has been a continual problem for several days.  So far, 
since re-installing it,  it has not missed a beat.  Earlier I would try 
to delete mail and it would do nothing until I stopped and restarted 
Thunderbird, it is not doing that now.  Other times Thunderbird would 
just stop responding to commands at all and I would have to do xkill and 
then remove a lock file to restore operation.  So far none of that has 
occurred.  Remember, this was an upgraded system from F7 to F8. 

You may be right, I'm still waiting for the ax to fall ...

Right now my satellite signal is blocked by weather.
