To be honest I cannot conclude anything from the backtrace.

I have installed OpenLDAP which is working fine with system login and
several other ports like (Apache, ProFTPD, Dovecot):

# pkg version -v |grep ldap
nss_ldap-1.265_10                  =   up-to-date with port
openldap-sasl-client-2.4.39        =   up-to-date with port
openldap-sasl-server-2.4.39_1      =   up-to-date with port
pam_ldap-1.8.6_2                   =   up-to-date with port
php5-ldap-5.4.28                   =   up-to-date with port
proftpd-mod_ldap-1.3.4d_5          =   up-to-date with port

These are my configuration options of OpenLDAP:

I have searched the freebsd-ports mailing list backwards until December
2012. There are not many Thunderbird related posts. These might be

but they are terminated with no clear result.

I am out of ideas and I am wondering, if there is anybody
successfully using Thunderbird 24.5.0 on FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE-p2 at all.

Besides that I feel my corresponding PR related to Thunderbird 24.4.0
somehow being ignored:
It would be helpful at least know, if this behavior is reproducible by

Besides other things my FreeBSD server is hosting my emails. I have
installed e.g. Firefox and Thunderbird more as an emergency fallback
which I will only rarely need. If I should ever need to read my emails
directly on my server I could to it with GNU Emacs/Gnus or Claws Mail
which are both working so far on 10.0-RELEASE.
