The only potentially critical issue for Thunderbird is this one:
http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2006/mfsa2006-40.html

We don't plan on fixing this for RHEL4 since there is double free detection
in newish glibc, turning this issue into a crash (which is not critical).

Anything after and including FC3 should have this protection, but nothing
before.

As a heads up, I recently learned of this page:
http://wiki.mozilla.org/WeeklyUpdates/2006-06-05#FF.2FTB_1.5.0.5

It seems we can expect the next round of pain on 2006-07-19.  That's a
fairly aggressive date so it may slip, but should be near that date.
