My experience is that it is better to run IMAP server on localhost and 
store all messages there ... emails are too valuable thing to be given to 
pre-release code. Anyway ...

I would love to see a bug report for this with a backtrace of thunderbird 
when it is in 100% CPU state. So, please:

1) install all -debuginfo packages (debuginfo-install thunderbird is your 
2) start TB,
3) open gnome-terminal (or whatever terminal emulator you use in X) and 
when TB goes to 100% CPU, you will have hopefully at least enough juice 
to Alt+TAB to the terminal and run

gdb --pid=$(/sbin/pidof thunderbird-bin)

(you can have it prepared on the command line, so you just run Alt+TAB 
and Enter)

4) when you finally get gdb prompt, run command

thread apply all backtrace

5) you get many screens of stuff, please, copy it into a new bug report 
against Thunderbird component on bugzilla.redhat.com.

Thank you,
