Perhaps the script runs "cd /var/lib/gdm3" and you added "cp -R
~/.thunderbird .thunderbird.backup", the backup without the path?

You should post what exactly you edited.

You're partly right :)

cat Default
cp -R /home/frank/.thunderbird  thunderbird.backup
exit 0


I failed to add "/home/frank" or ~ to the destination, perhaps
thinking wrongly cp would copy to the original directory.
My mistake...now fixed...
