mozilla/thunderbird behavior

    On both of my mozilla and thunderbird installations [win98se] there is a
    tree for "Local Folders"

    It appears that the only entries needed under that tree are:

    Inbox, Unsent Messages, Drafts, Sent, Trash and any specific folders I
    create to keep my messages/posts in.

    But on both programs, the 'Local Folders' tree is contaminated with lots
    of needless clutter as it lists all of the files and folders in my
    installation directory, i.e. AccessibleMarchal.dll, chrome, components,
    defaults, install.log, install_status.log, license.dll ...
    xpicleanup.exe, etc.

    Is this a bug in the programs? Or is there a way I can clean up the
    list so it shows only the folders related to messages?
