Yeah, I'm running unstable.
Here's my best guess as to what happened (as it's fixed now)
I use a shared profile between a Windows and Linux installation of Thunderbird on a FAT32 drive... and I think something was corrupted. Last time I booted into windows it did the automagic "scanning disk for whatever" blue screen, and the problem went away.
But that's just a best guess, perhaps it was some obscure library that came or went as I have installed and removed a couple other software packages.
