Thunderbird is acting up quite strange ...

I've seen this on rare ocassions. Thunderbird simply doesn't get the new messages any more. It sits idle as if there ain't anymore new messages to be delivered to the inbox, although there'd be quite a few messages (about 93 in todays case) on the email server.

A shutdown and restart of the application takes care of the situation. However, IMO, that's not the way it's supposed to work ! :(

Update : This might not be an issue for those who sutdown down their machine or email application each day (or almost). I never shutdown Thunderbird till my machine gets rebooted (or there's some ocassional problem) once in 2/3 months or so. Hence that's quite a long time to show a behavior like that noted above. Nonetheless ...
