	I just ran a short test, and thunderbird shuts down cleanly for me
(F11.x86_64).  And, yes, I am up-to-date with thunderbird (3.0b3) and
running both lightning and enigmail (which were both just re-released to
work with 3.0b3).  I kinda wish more of the other plugins I had
installed would work with the beta.  Are you running any other plugins
besides the 2 you mentioned?  I kinda miss the quote collapse and header
scroll extensions which aren't compatible with the beta release.
