Package: thunderbird
Version: 1:45.7.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

my home directory has grown organically over the years, and at a time
was mounted both from an Ubuntu and Debian install. As such, it had the
following symlink in place:

    lrwxrwxrwx 2 foo foo 13 Nov 23  2015 .icedove -> .thunderbird/

The /usr/bin/thunderbird script detects this situation and errors out.

While this is trivial to fix for me, maybe other people have such a
symlink and would appreciate a slightly more versatile migration script.

Possible approaches on symlink detection:

 *  (in case the migration script is idempotent):
    just do the additional fixups in-place
 *  (in case it is not):
    copy .thunderbird to .icedove_moved_by_thunderbird_starter before fixup
 *  just delete the .icedove symlink and assume any internal paths
    in .thunderbird are consistent.

Thank you for making the live of Debian Mozilla users a bit easier ince
