Hello zosimus!

Code:
find / -name "thunderbird"
To find more files that contain the word "thunderbird" try:
Code:
find / -name "thunderbird*"
Also try
Code:
locate thunderbird
..but you have to update the slocate database as root first with
Code:
updatedb
Cheers, Boby!

I've just done a search on google and apparently its a bug in the kernel, but its not serious, so the error can be ignored.
