Hi Gilles,

the only thing i'm asking for is if you start thunderbird with - remote. 
If so then i wonder why it works for netscape and mozilla. As far as i 
understood the -remote requires a parameter that we are not using and 
not needing. If you don't want to test it, i will try to do that next 
weekend. But i'm not a C++ Programmer and i have never used KDE and QT 
API. So i'm not sure if i could make it.
