  thunderbird stopped displaying folders

Status in thunderbird package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I didn't use Thunderbird for about a month or so on my netbook and the
  package must have been updated in the meantime.  Unfortunately, TB now
  no longer displays the folder and is thus entirely unusable (see
  screenshot).  This account has used TB for mail for years and
  obviously has a bunch of (IMAP) folders, in fact, they account for
  about 2G of files locally.  The same package works fine on another
  computer.  The problem occurs even in safe-mode.  I am running TB
  17.0.8+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 on precise.

  Another thing I noticed is that TB is extremely slow to start up
  recently.  It takes about a minute of real time or 30s of CPU time
  before even the window is displayed.

  I have downgraded to 17.0.6+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 now and that works
  fine, so this is a regression.
