The problem should be fixed now. My parser would fail if something was
used as both key and dictionary. Thunderbird preferences are simple
key-value pairs using '.' to provide a hierarchy for the keys. Here is a
very simple example:
My code tries (essentially) to convert it into an NSDictionary, but it
would fail in the above example since 'one' would need to be both a key
for a string and a dictionary. My current solution is to prefer
dictionary over string.
I would still like to see the lines in your Thunderbird preferences
which triggered the bug.
