Andred's was kind enough to generate a linux build for us today so I decided to post it. Should show up in the next 15 minutes:

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/ ... 5-15-trunk

Andre has the following comments to add about the build (which I shamelessly stole from a posting of his)

1) GTK2
2) libxft2 + fontconfig
3) spell checker
4) The build requires GLIBC 2.3 in order to run since that's what his flavor of linux used.

Many thanks to Andre for putting this build together for us.

Thanks Scott for putting it up on the FTP. Did you notice that for some reason an extra ".tar" extension was added to the file? It seams harmless since it's still a bzip2-compressed tarfile, but I thought I would just mention it.

Hmm, no I didn't notice that it added the extra .tar extension. I'm not sure why my windows box did that when I downloaded it. I'll try to remove it.

Thanks again for the bits.

I suspect you downloaded it with Moz/FB by left-clicking on the link Andre provided, correct? If so, that's <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144334" title="foo.tar.gz saved as foo.tar.gz.tar">bug 144334</a> that you've experienced.

That's exactly what I did. Glad to know it was a firebird bug and not pilot error =)

To avoid this bug you should use a right-click | Save Link As or Alt+Left-click (a good habit to get into when you are deliberately going to download something anyway). Just avoid a pure left-click for downloading known targets.
