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