I had no problems with Thunderbird 3.0b4 or any of the nightly builds
that have lead up to it. Once or twice over the many months I had a
'bad day' but it was corrected by the next night's build. I should say
that these are Mozilla nightly builds and not Fedora's. I currently am
using 3.0pre dated Oct 19, 2009. I turned on GLODA as soon as it was
available. It took some time to complete the first time. From then on it
takes nothing that I can never notice unless I see the information show
up in the activity notification area.

As for the thread you mentioned? I saw that I seem to recall that no one
really had a problem other than the amount of time it took to do the
indexing the first time. But I did not find that a major problem or
experience any others with the 3.0b4 series. And to repeat myself -
these were *not* Fedora supplied packages. They came directly from Mozilla.

I also get my Firefox nightly-build packages directly from Mozilla.
Mozilla does not force all of those language packages on me as Fedora
does.  :-)

But seriously if you think that this is really important you should
write a Bugzilla on it so that the maintainer(s) will know about this.
Writing to a mailing list normally only generates message threads.
