	That's the great thing:: clicking on a Thunderbird URL 
	just-works :-)  But it takes time; like 45 seconds.  I 
	don't see any flags on indicator saying "URL connecting 
	with Firefox", zip.  So I double/triple click.  My bad.

	Same think happens under Gnome on my AMD 2800.  The broswer 
	does *not* pop up over evolution.  There prob'ly is some hack
	you can make, but I barely know Gnome; I use CTWM and am much
	more used to a CLI
