Thunderbird 3.1 on Ubuntu 10.04 segfaults on launch with LDAP users

Quick post – I have an Ubuntu 10.04 system configured to authenticate LDAP users. I found that after installing Thunderbird, LDAP users cannot launch the application without it crashing with a segmentation fault instead.

Turns out this is a known and widespread issue, and the workaround (which worked in my case) is to install nscd.
