thunderbird cannot save messages

My system: Linux 2.6.26-2-pae i686 openSUSE 11.0.42 (i586) Alpha1
KDE: 3.5.9 "release 65.1"
Since the installation with the new release on June 19 of Suse 11.0 it is constantly impossible to save any e-mail messages with Thunderbird (and with Seamonkey Mail).
This is the message I constantly get in Thunderbird and Seamonkey Mail:
"Unable to save the message. Please check your file name and try again later".
The filename is e.g.: registration.eml (something thunderbird always and before in Suse 10.1 and 10.3 has saved without any problem).
There is also some error console in Thunderbird (cannot find something equal in Seamonkey Mail unfortunately, but presume this is about the same):
Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0xc1f30001 (NS_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED) [nsIMessenger.saveAs]" nsresult: "0xc1f30001 (NS_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://messenger/content/mailCommands.js :: SaveAsFile :: line 416" data: no]

This is the line 416 from the mailCommands.js file by the way:
messenger.saveAs(uri, true, null, filename);

What is the problem exactly and how can I change and solve this, I tried to open this file under root in a console, without result anyway (only signs with vim). Thanks for the solution.
