I have no idea, but today I got fed up enough that I decided to work 
around it.  I placed an extension at 
http://people.redhat.com/pbonzini/format-flawed.tar.gz -- you're welcome 
to expand it in "~/.thunderbird/<profile name>/extensions" and test it.

Since the buggy code is in C++, it just disables format=flowed when 
replying to non-format=flowed messages.  It's ugly as hell, but it does 
the job.
