Dude, where's my mail?! Bug in renaming folders in TB 1.0.2

Thunderbird 1.0.2 / Windows XP Pro

There's a bug somewhere in renaming folders.

(BACK UP YOUR MAIL BEFORE YOU TRY THIS)

Right click on Inbox
New Folder...
Dummy > Ok
Put 1 mail msg in it
Rename Dummy to New Dummy > Ok
Rename New Dummy to Dummy > Ok
Open Dummy ... Ok, where's the mail message?

And, if you play around enough, you'll also find that if you delete New
Dummy, Dummy is what gets put into the Trash and New Dummy still exists.

UNTIL THIS BUG IS FIXED, DO NOT RENAME YOUR THUNDERBIRD FOLDERS!

Create a new folder, move the mail to the new folder and then delete the
old folder.

Curious. I just read every version's release notes for Known Issues
going back to version 0.1 and couldn't find mention of the renaming bug.

Umm, original post goes back to January 2001, a "little bit more" than 2
years.
