comment Thunderbird “unified folders” not working after moving my profile
Well your links did lead me to the correct solution, which was to delete panacea.dat and all .msf files from the profile folder. That even retained the folder selection I had on my Unified Inbox. Source: "Phantom folders" mozillaZine article

Thanks! This worked for me with ext3. Note that I had to first mount the ext3 filesystem into some mount directory, then mount that directory with bindfs into the final directory.

Any idea whether this should work with EXT3 as well? I get EXT3-fs: Unrecognized mount option "uid=1000" or missing value in dmesg when I try it with ext3.

So the drivers are the same as the "bluetooth stack"? I wonder why Windows didn't find the drivers for the bluetooth adapter on the first time then. Oh well, in a surprising turn of events, BTW, the Toshiba BT adapter actually physically broke today, and I had to get a new one. :) Well, the same procedure still works.

@harrymc: If you write this solution (something about switching back to Microsoft stack) as a new answer, I'll gladly accept that to pay the bounty rep!

Yes! The problem was that the Toshiba stack saved its keys into some other location. Key revelation for me was that I can remove the Toshiba stack but still have my bluetooth dongle working. After switching to Microsoft stack, the link key was found in the location SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services\BTHPORT\Parameters\Keys\[BD_ADDR] and it could be copied into linux side, just as the forum post I linked described. I can now confirm that my phone is now correctly working as double paired to both windows and linux side.

Well, I removed the Toshiba bluetooth stack, but the bluetooth adapter still works, now with Microsoft stack. Interesting. I assume the Toshiba stack and Toshiba drivers are independent, but the installer installed both of them without ever asking me if I'm interested in the stack at all (which I really wasn't). Ok, now to see if the pairing works, and if the pairing key can be found from the place where it should be...

Well, Windows didn't find any of its own drivers when I first plugged in the device - I'd rather use Microsoft than third party drivers. But since Windows didn't find them, I had to get the Toshiba drivers. They also happen to be some really annoying trial version (the drivers that came with the device didn't have a Win7 version), so I would be more than happy to get rid of them...

I'm not sure if it's possible to switch to Microsoft stack. At least my BT device required Toshiba drivers to work - does this mean it would also require Toshiba BT stack? I'm not at all familiar with the driver/stack distinction.
